During our 2021–2022 fiscal year, we continued to support partners through the enduring challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, focused on keeping their organizations strong and stable. This fiscal year (July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022) also included a shift from setting our new strategic direction to beginning to implement it.
Because of this ongoing transition, our financials continue to reflect the program areas from our previous strategic plan. We invested in the following areas: Early Learning and School Mental Health (which together form our D.C. Wards 7 and 8 Initiative), Seventh-day Adventist Initiative, Food Security Initiative and the Bainum Foundation Farm. Through our Family Philanthropy Initiative, we also supported the personal philanthropic efforts of multiple generations of the Bainum family.
The following is a summary of the investments we made during our 2021–2022 fiscal year.
