A partner seeks to be in relationship with the Collective and has made both a financial contribution and an institutional commitment (i.e., returned a signed funder agreement), aligning their equity journey to the Collective's articulated values around advancing Black equity. Partners are invited to participate in quarterly learning labs with other philanthropic partners, and are invited to participate in joint networking and peer learning opportunities with our network of Black-led organizations. Partners may publicly brand themselves as a Partner of the Black Equity Collective. Partners also receive all of the benefits available to supporters.
A supporter values the work the Collective makes to the broader ecosystem of philanthropy and on racial justice, and wants to see that work succeed. Supporters make a financial contribution to the Collective to further advance the efforts. While they may be on their own equity journey, supporters have not made an institutional commitment to align their journey with that of the Collective. Supporters receive ongoing updates about the Collective's work and progress, and are invited to attend annual or semi-annual network-wide events.
