What role can foundations play in influencing equity & inclusion efforts in our community. We believe a GREAT DEAL!!
Whether it is by building your foundation’s own awareness about how your practices & policies advance or restrict the development of community-wide equity efforts or by serving as a convener and catalyst for organizations you fund, the possibilities are significant.
Foundations can serve as partners in advancing equity by:
- Sponsoring equity-related convenings attended by foundation, nonprofit and public sector leaders
- Considering how best to integrate equity into the grant-making process
- Developing a cultural responsiveness standard that all grantees are encouraged to follow
Additionally, foundations can advance equity within their own organizations
