The second in a series of three reports from CEP exploring the foundation response to the unprecedented challenges of 2020, this publication examines changes in foundations' work to address anti-Black racism and to promote racial equity. A survey of over 200 foundation leaders found that almost all respondents reported placing new, or more, focus on supporting Black, Latino, and lower-income communities. Additionally, most foundation leaders reported reckoning with racism and paying greater attention to racial equity in their work. Nevertheless, respondents admitted that there remains still significant room for further progress, and it remains to be seen how deep and sustained this new focus will be.
