The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $350,000 to California YIMBY (short for “yes-in-my-back-yard”) to complete a match that we established at the same time as our previous general operating support grant. California YIMBY plans to use our support to hire additional staff members to focus on organizing, communications, digital outreach, data and analytics, and finance and operations. This falls within our focus area of land use reform and our work to promote housing affordability.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.
