Conrad N. Hilton Foundation announced late last month the approval of grants totaling more than $76 million to 32 charitable organizations across the country and internationally. 

The board of the Westlake Village organization approved the third-quarter round of grantmaking on Oct. 26, awarding more than $11 million through the Foundation’s Equity Fund, which was established in 2020 to combat racism and other forms of bias and injustice, including gender, disability and sexuality. Grants made through the fund are for general operating support and capacity building to organizations led and governed by historically under-represented populations in the United States.

“The impact of the pandemic hit underserved communities the hardest, uncovering systemic barriers and shedding a light on the need to address the root causes of inequity,” Peter Laugharn, chief executive of the foundation, said in a statement. “We are proud to support the transformative work of these organizations and directly partner with communities to make our world a better place for all.”
