Yvonne Moore, Founder and Managing Director of Moore Philanthropy, talks with Dr. Monique Couvson, President and CEO of Grantmakers for Girls of Color, about the urgent need in philanthropy to support Black girls.

Bringing Together Donors and Funding to Move the Needle Toward Real Change
As one of the few Black-led and woman-owned philanthropic advisory firms, Moore Philanthropy continues to be a leader in reversing the lack of investment in communities of color. We ensure that changemakers can access the support and financial tools to create change and build generational wealth.
As we close 2022, we look toward the future and the work yet to be done. Despite the charitable nature of philanthropy, the lack of diverse leadership and low funding levels for leaders of color are clear indicators of the sector’s continued shortcomings.

Moore Impact Invests $1.3 Million to Fortify the Sustainability and Innovation of BIPOC-led Enterprises
Email Emerson Soto
Moore Impact announced $1.3 million in grants to 18 “Power Champions,” a cohort of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) led enterprises working at the intersection of racial equity and COVID-19 response. The investments aim to fortify the long-term sustainability and innovation of organizations serving people from under-resourced communities across the United States and reverse philanthropy’s disinterest in BIPOC-led social change.
Investments by Moore Impact, a collaborative partner and 501(c)(3) exempt entity under Moore Philanthropy, will provide flexible general operating support over two years and focus on groups whose work directly impacts people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and compounding health, economic, education, and racial justice crises. Additionally, funding will fortify organizations whose leadership and staff are reflective of the communities they serve – 100% of grantees serving Black communities are Black-led; 100% of Native-serving enterprises have Native leadership; 78% of grantees are woman-led; and the majority of grants will be directed to regions often neglected by philanthropy in the South, Midwest, and Inland Western United States.
