In the aftermath of the brutal killing of George Floyd, grant makers are pouring billions into racial-equity work to support nonprofits that have begun ― or are renewing ― efforts to end systemic racism.
Ninety percent of U.S. foundations are supporting efforts to advance racial equity according to recent research by the Center for Effective Philanthropy.
How can your nonprofit attract grant dollars to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within your organization and the community?
Join us to learn from a grant maker who supports this work and the leader of a nonprofit that focuses on racial equity. You’ll learn from an executive at the Satterberg Foundation, which recently increased its support for groups led by people of color. CC Gardner, director of programs and strategic initiatives, will explain:
- what she looks for when selecting grantees
- how to find foundations that may support this work
- ways to capture the attention of grant makers who don’t accept unsolicited proposals
- how to show a long-term commitment to racial equity.
Sean Goode, head of a nonprofit that helps young people stay out of the criminal-justice system, will share ways to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within your organization and weave the costs of these efforts into a proposal budget. He also will demonstrate how to set goals for racial-equity work in your community, measure progress, and share results in ways that resonate with foundations and donors.
What will you learn?
- How to build an effective case for support for diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts
- Tips for identifying and forging ties with foundations that support racial-equity work
- Ways you should — and should not — tell the story of your work to grant makers and donors
