These grants focus on key areas like vaccine equity, relief centers, refugee resettlement, and building a better online world.

They've also spent $520,826 to deliver programs and campaigns that align with their priorities, including vaccine equity and conservation.

The Archewell Foundation follows the standard practice for organizations of its size, with a 90/10 ratio of program services to administrative expenses.

This approach ensures that 80 percent of total expenses go towards their programs, while 20 percent or less is spent on administrative costs.

Additionally, they've supported academic fellows, created a guide on positive masculinity, and built a play space in Texas after a tragic school shooting.

As we approach our third year at The Archewell Foundation, we reflect on the depth of the experience," James Holt and Shauna Nep, Co-Executive Directors of The Archewell Foundation, said. "It has been rich with learning, growth, inspiration, and action. We've made new partnerships and strengthened existing ones.

"We've rolled up our sleeves, opened our arms, and opened our hearts, creating connections through care and compassion, in times of need and times of crisis.

"Dovetailing off of the impact we've made during this start-up phase we will continue to build a better world online, work to restore trust in information, and above all, uplift communities online and offline, local and global."
