Funders Together is excited to promote The Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE)'s webinar on "Mismatched: The Philanthropic Response to the Call for Racial Justice"
About this webinar
After a year of protest, pandemic, and political momentum in 2020, a sea change in U.S.-based grantmaking for racial issues appeared to be underway. Small family foundations, mainstream and progressive national foundations, and corporations of all kinds pledged significant financial support that seemed to prioritize racial equity and racial justice. Headlines hyped these promises as a dramatic response from philanthropy to the uprisings against police brutality and widespread calls for true racial justice — popular activism on a massive scale that continued into the new year.
But what really happened in 2020?
What is the true state of racial equity and racial justice philanthropy?
Join the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) for a webinar on Thursday, October 14th at 12:30pm ET/ 9:30am PT to explore these questions and more.
This webinar will feature the authors of PRE's new report, Mismatched: The Philanthropic Response to the Call for Racial Justice. The new report is the most comprehensive assessment of racial equity and racial justice funding to date, providing a detailed analysis of funding from 2015-2018 and preliminary analysis of 2020. It helps correct a lot of misconceptions about the state of racial equity and racial justice grantmaking - and this webinar is your chance to connect with the authors on the findings.
