Today, we are faced with crises of the COVID-19 pandemic, persistent and entrenched systemic racism, and economic, environmental and social challenges around the globe.
For decades, philanthropy has sought to make communities more just, but the events of 2020 further exposed the ways in which too many of our systems are broken. And, too often historic practices in philanthropy can exacerbate these problems.
As donors, policy makers, and social change leaders committed to meeting this moment, we know that none of us can change systems alone. That’s why we’re working collectively to mobilize, share power, and change philanthropy towards more equity and justice.
