Decolonizing Philanthropy

 

RSVP here

 

When it comes to racial equity, philanthropy is part of the problem. Our history of colonialism still impacts how philanthropy redistributes wealth in the United States—and it's up to us, the philanthropic and fundraising community, to fix that.

Following the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests, philanthropic giving became more equitable, transparent, and available. But has philanthropy continued to embrace systemic change in the long term? Have we slid backward as the movement's momentum waned?

This panel of philanthropists and fundraisers will assess how funders and nonprofits are doing in their efforts to decolonize the sector. What positive changes do we continue to see? Where do we need to continue pushing change? They'll offer recommendations for nonprofits seeking to deepen partnerships with philanthropists that center equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Moderator:

George Suttles, Executive Director, Commonfund Institute

Panelists to be announced.
