An innovative cadre of philanthropic funders and grantees are moving away from business as usual and reimagining the process of partnering with and supporting Black-led organizing by shifting the old transactional model of giving to a new transformational path. Join the Stanford Social Innovation Review for this live discussion that will examine philanthropy’s role in racial justice and explore future possibilities in this changing landscape. Participants will be part of a timely dialogue that examines lessons learned from these new approaches to funding frontline organizations—including a willingness to confront the historic legacy of white supremacy and building authentic relationships of trust with movement leaders.
The webinar will provide an opportunity for audience members to be challenged and made uncomfortable—to experience real-time learning as history unfolds and as change emerges in the philanthropic sector. The panelists will share important insights from the racial injustices of 2020, the philanthropic response to recent events, and a roadmap for foundations to support racial justice causes. Included in the viewer resources will be compilations of important articles and other materials to provide additional perspectives on the relationship between philanthropy and race.
This webinar is free.
