Cleveland, Saint Luke’s, and George Gund foundations release RFP for equitable placemaking efforts

The Cleveland, Saint Luke’s, and George Gund foundations are working collectively to bolster equitable placemaking efforts in the City of Cleveland, recognizing 1) the need for diverse practitioners in this field who reflect the diversity of the neighborhoods; and 2) the need to support non-traditional “placemakers” – residents, organizers, and artists – who are engaging in this work already but could benefit from additional support. We do not profess to have the answers but hope to engage with smart minds to source solutions to the questions raised in this request for proposals. Interested parties should respond to this RFP by March 1 for full consideration. Interviews are anticipated by mid-March with the engagement starting in April 2022. Diverse perspective is important to this process, therefore the selection of a consultant/firm and the shaping of this work will be supported by a small committee of practitioners, residents, and the three funders.

Equal employment opportunity has been, and will continue to be, a fundamental principle at The George Gund Foundation, where employment is without discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, national origin, disability, or any other protected characteristic established by applicable law. This policy of equal employment opportunity applies to all policies and procedures relating to recruitment and hiring, compensation, benefits, termination, and all other terms and conditions of employment. These fundamental principles apply to contract relationships as well.
