Inside Philanthropy

Yvonne Moore got her start in philanthropy in the late 1990s as a program associate and director. She went on to become the executive director of the Daphne Foundation in New York and chief of staff for Abigail Disney, where she oversaw the family’s network of media, philanthropic and advocacy organizations. But Moore has worn many hats over the years, and become an influential voice in the sector along the way.

Realizing Just and Liberated Futures for Black Girls, Femmes, and Gender-Expansive Youth

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. They discuss how financial institutions must reimagine how they serve Black communities and not “bring a frozen turkey to a house with no oven.”

Tune into their enriching conversation to learn more about Yvonne’s mission and beliefs in serving Black communities and their philanthropic needs.

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.
