Shifting Paradigms in the Practice of Philanthropy


We are bringing forth a paradigm shift in philanthropy from focusing on Black deficits to shining a light on our considerable potential and financial leverage in order to increase the assets in our communities with the power of Black philanthropy.

Our vision is to create a strong alliance between funders and Black communities. We will get there by providing tools and resources to help foundations and other giving organizations make informed grantmaking decisions about their support in our communities.
Your participation makes the difference.  Join us as we innovate Black philanthropy!
