We envision a network of funders committed to the long-term viability of Black organizations
By joining the Collective, funders will:
Acknowledge racial injustice harms social progress
Commit to learning for action in two or more ways:
Improving grantmaking practices at an institution-level,
Internal tracking of philanthropic investments to Black-led and Black-empowering organization
Leveraging relationships to influence how money moves differently as a field (and toward Black organizations); and
Using your voice and public platform to speak about systemic harm to Black people and advocate for equity-based investments.
Building race-consciousness within oneself and their institution,

"We fully support and embrace “thriving while Black” as a fundamental civil right, and we are confident that the Black Equity Collective is the organization to shepherd that essential right into a new reality for the Black community."
