Achieving long-term sustainability for BIPOC-led organizations
By Yvonne L. Moore
Philanthropy means love of humankind.
And while people of color have generously led the way in showing up for our communities by investing in racial justice initiatives, the sector-at-large lags and is retrenching after years of promising to invest over $200 billion dollars in combating racial injustice.
This is why I founded Moore Philanthropy, and our public charity to scale our work. There is a lack of investment in our communities, and we want to change that. We want to build the wealth and influence of communities of color and break down barriers that prevent changemakers from advancing movements that will bring about economic, social, and racial justice.
This year, we’re launching a campaign to raise $10,000 to help build the engine that will power racial justice movements. This #GivingTuesday, join us in this effort by making a gift.
Your donation will support the expansion of our ongoing efforts to fund Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-led and serving organizations across the United States. It will enable us to give to more groups and increase the size of grants. With your support, we can further invest in regions philanthropy has often ignored, such as the Inner West, Midwest, and Southern United States.
With your generosity, we can continue to mobilize our community to hold philanthropy for its promises to combat racial injustice. Make a donation today.

Moderated by Hafeeza Rashed, Director of Programs and Partnerships at Moore Philanthropy, Comic Relief US recently convened its first grantee gathering since 2019. The event featured a thought-provoking panel discussion on the importance of investing in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and youth-led organizations. Leaders shared insights on why including youth as decision-makers is essential to solving complex problems and creating the change we want to see in the world.
Corporate America and Philanthropy Must Deliver on Racial Justice Promises
By Yvonne L. Moore
In the wake of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Minneapolis police, corporations and philanthropy worldwide promised to join the fight against racial injustice and voiced their support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Billions of dollars were pledged to tackle systemic racism and inequality in communities of color.
Our founder, Yvonne Moore, contributed to A New Era of Giving – Reflections on Philanthropy for Social Justice, a collection of essays and conversations by the ISDM Centre for Philanthropy for Inclusive Development. Her essay explores how motivation and intent are critical to the success of our philanthropic pursuits for equity and social justice.

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.
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.”
