Juneteenth Call to Create Abundance with, by, and for Black Communities

What We Can Do Differently

We can take on more first-time grantees. An effort to close the gap in funding that Black-led organizations receive from our sector requires developing new grantmaking systems that allow us to be more open-minded to new-to-us grantees. We can collaborate with peer foundations to discover promising initiatives to support. And we can transcend limitations in our experiences by taking advice about where to allocate money from external partners who are more proximate to the communities and issues that are too often overlooked and underfunded.
