Funding for racial equity

Forum member Candid recently expanded its definition of racial equity grantmaking to reflect the intent of funders among other things, the Associated Press reported.

"Shortly after the 2020 relaunch of Candid's racial equity funding site, the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) contacted us with two primary concerns about the way the data was presented: the distinction between racial equity and racial justice funding, and the mixing of grants and pledges," Lisa Philp, Vice President of Development and Communications at Candid, wrote in a blog post.

Under this framework, Candid defines racial justice grantmaking, "as [grants] awarded to address the underlying systems and structures that generate and reinforce racial inequality." https://candid.org/explore-issues/racial-equity

Candid believes that realizing racial equity here and around the world is going to require nonprofits and foundations to step up like never before. In an effort to get you the information you need to understand the issues surrounding racial equity, we're sharing continuously updated data as wel...

The data also reflects an increase in voluntary benefits for staff, from flexible spending accounts to tuition assistance. The GSB Report and Key Findings are key tools to inform funders’ human resources decision-making.

MacKenzie Scott Shines a Light on Groups That Bolster Nonprofits and Foundations

PSOs have long struggled to win the attention of individual donors, but that might be changing as MacKenzie Scott shines a spotlight on them.

Global Trends and Strategic Time Horizons in Philanthropy 2021 Survey - Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors

Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors welcomes the participation of all philanthropies and individual donors from around the world in its latest survey on global philanthropy trends and strategic time horizons. This second iteration of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors’ biennial survey seeks to explore trends in the diverse landscape of global philanthropy. Strategic time horizons in philanthropy—the length of time over which a donor or foundation seeks to engage in philanthropic giving—and how funders think about and approach this topic is a particular focus.

The survey is designed for a wide range of philanthropic operations and foundation types, including but not limited to independent/private endowed foundations, family-led philanthropies (foundations and offices), corporate foundations, community foundations and private business vehicles. Results will be analyzed and included in a publicly available research report available in 2021/2022 via Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors’ website.
