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.
