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.

How Yvonne Moore Maximizes Philanthropy’s Potential to Do Good

Long before she began her work with foundations, Yvonne Moore had learned that “love of humankind” means more in action than it does in etymology. She grew up being shaped by the ways Black women in her family showed up in their communities and took in how they grounded their everyday philanthropy in an ethic of care and shared responsibility. Moore has relied on her family’s values and her faith as a source of insight and accountability, guiding her throughout her extensive career in institutional philanthropy.
