Strategic Framework 2022

Our strategic framework process was a 2-year endeavor that resulted in a new mission, vision, and theory of change that informs our work in a radical new direction. This journey has deepened our analysis and commitment to supporting black and brown youth-led movements for racial and social justice.

Letter from Sheila Perrin, Co-Founder & President of The Perrin Family Foundation

Dear Friends,
As Chair of the Perrin Family Foundation, I am happy to share with you a copy of our new strategic frame-work. Following a history of supporting youth in more traditional direct service programs, we have gradually moved to a more targeted approach to supporting youth in addressing the social and racial inequities in their lives and communities. Our path has taken us from funding programs driven by adults to funding community change driven by youth. We recognize the value, the importance and power of leveraging our resources to amplify young people’s voice and leadership as they create change in societal structures.

Seen + Heard

As foundations committed to youth voice and leadership, the Perrin Family Foundation, Leever Foundation, Ritter Family Foundation and Nellie Mae Education Fund have shared a deep concern about the stounding absence of young people’s voices in the discussion, discourse, and decision-making happening about them during the COVID-19 Pandemic. So we asked them to be Seen and Heard.

 The Perrin Family Foundation’s mission is to invest in and cultivate support for an ecosystem that builds the collective leadership and power of Black and Brown youth in order to advance movements for racial and social justice

Why Youth Led Social Change?

Creating opportunities for youth to share their truths, question the status quo, exercise leadership and take action to create change will not only pave the way for young people’s lifelong participation and leadership in the civic sphere, it also has the potential to transform our youth, communities, and institutions in the here and now.
