African Americans have participated in charitable giving in this country for hundreds of years, that over the past decade, African American families have—more than any other racial group—contributed the largest proportion of their wealth to charity. If nonprofits are serious about cultivating diverse communities, they must commit across their organizations to diversity and inclusion as well as dedicate time, resources, and attention to identify, solicit, and steward Black donors on their own terms.

Moderator: Michael Gordon Voss, publisher of Stanford Social Innovation Review

Historically, women and girls of color (WGOC) make up the frontlines of activism in the United States and abroad. Compared to the high-end budgets of larger foundations, nonprofits and other organizations that serve, are founded by, or are led by WGOC must do the work of much larger-scale organizations while subsisting on “pocket change” budgets.
