Publisher: IUPUI Lilly Family School of Philanthropy
Description:
Given the changing demographics of the U.S. population, it is important for philanthropic professionals to better understand the motivations and giving habits of donors of color. This report examines the ways that diverse populations participate in philanthropy, including their giving preferences, methods of giving, and that state of giving for racial and social justice causes. The study found that key motivating factors in giving by donors of color include faith, a belief in philanthropy as a self-help tool, feelings of reciprocity, and an interest in 'leveling the playing field' for future generations. In terms of mechanisms for giving, donors of color showed a preference for religious organizations, universities and educational institutions, civil rights and arts nonprofits, and identity-based financial institutions. Donors of color also demonstrated a tendency to give through small groups such as giving circles and often relied on personal connections to vet organizations.

Description:
The Diversity Among Philanthropy Professionals (DAPP) Survey aims to help the philanthropic community better understand its workforce and leadership. This second DAPP report builds on findings from 2018 and is based on responses from 124 foundations and over 2,300 individuals from the field. The 2020 DAPP Survey found that people of color accounted for 45.3 percent of the staff and board at participating foundations, up from 37.8 percent in 2018. At the regional level, the South demonstrated the least diversity with less than 35 percent of staff and board members identifying as people of color. The report includes profiles of various identity groups within philanthropy and offers recommendations and suggested resources for foundations and philanthropic support organizations.

Publisher: PolicyLink, The Bridgespan Group
Description:
In the wake of unprecedented commitments in 2020, PolicyLink partnered with the Bridgespan Group to analyze the state of philanthropic funding for racial equity - with a focus on high-level donors (both institutional funders and individual donors). The report was informed by interviews with more than 34 racial equity movement leaders, funders, and others across the equity ecosystem; analyses of Candid data for 2020 and 2018 (the most complete year data is available) to identify funding trends; and a review of literature to understand what is needed to achieve equitable structural change. The authors discuss what was learned about funders’ intention to contribute toward racial equity, explore what it will take to achieve enduring impact, and offer specific ways that funders can work to close the gap between intention and impact.

Publisher: Equitable Evaluation Initiative, Grantmakers for Effective Organizations
Description:
"The Equitable Evaluation Initiative was created by a foundation collaborative in 2018. Designed as a five-year initiative, by 2023 it aims to build an integrated and sustainable field of practitioners whose evaluation practice
is grounded in the Equitable Evaluation Framework (EEF). The EEF is not a model or method, but takes form as a reflective and reflexive practice of continual learning that takes into account equity as both a means and an end. This publication provides an overview of the impetus for the EEF and attempts to document the initial steps of engagement with staff at six partner foundations. "

Publisher: Equivolve Consulting
Description:
Power Beyond Measure has its origins in a 2013 convening of funders affiliated with the Executives’ Alliance for Boys and Men of Color (BMOC). These funders came together to identify a path forward to create better alignment between research and practice, and to articulate programmatic and systems-level solutions for the issues facing BMOC today. This publication lays out six strategies and supporting actions that the authors believe will advance equity for BMOC. These strategies and actions are derived from Equivolve’s interviews and surveys conducted with leaders in the BMOC field, as well as a literature review. They challenge dominant paradigms and aim to flip the research, evaluation, and funding status quo to one that not only serves BMOC but actively supports their thriving.

Publisher: Grantmakers in the Arts
Description:
This report, commissioned by Grantmakers in the Arts, looks at the ways in which arts and culture grantmakers can engage in systems-change work. The arts and cultural sector is actively seeking alternatives to business-as-usual to create economic and racial justice in the sector and beyond. Grantmakers can play a role in the transformation of the sector by following the lead of BIPOC, disabled, queer, trans, and working class creatives who are innovating models for self-determination and community wealth. The report discusses barriers to this transformation and counters with recommendations for foundations to address these obstacles and move the field forward.

Publisher: Urban Institute
Description:
Commissioned from the Urban Institute by the Black Girl Freedom Fund (BGFF), this brief provides an overview of past and current trends in philanthropic giving to causes supporting Black girls. The brief summarizes recent funding trends by private and public funders and discusses the implications of the shifting landscape of funding to advance racial equity. The authors provide examples of existing, core funders and highlight emerging funders in the field. The brief found that there is no reliable mechanism for tracking or identifying the rate of philanthropic giving to Black girls as most funders do not disaggregate giving by race and gender. Moreover, more disaggregated data on community needs and inequities are needed to make the case for increasing investments for Black girls.

Publisher: Urban Institute
Description:
Authored by Benjamin Soskis, this report examines changes in the norms and narratives surrounding philanthropy - the rules governing accepted or valued charitable and philanthropic behavior and the replicable, archetypal stories that have developed to make sense of that behavior. The report also assesses how these norms and narratives have been shaped by and have shaped responses in the United States to the COVID-19 pandemic and to the mass protests after the killing of George Floyd. The analysis focuses on two groupings of giving norms and narratives: one surrounding the relationship between large-scale and small-scale giving, and one surrounding time-based considerations in giving.
