In an effort to address inequities in the Inland Empire, the Inland Empire Community Foundation is seeking to create and expand policy capacity through collaboration, uplift community-based organizations and their ideas, and establish a greater voice and influence on policymakers and the region’s major institutions.

Today, we officially launch our Office of Policy & Engagement!

Thank you for joining us as we engage community partners, philanthropic leaders, and elected officials around building regional policy capacity and creating systemic change within our community and our government at the local, state and federal levels.
