    EPIP Bay Area | February 2020 Article Club

     

    Join EPIP's Bay Area Chapter for snacks and a discussion on Philanthropists Bench Women of Color, the M.V.P.s of Social Change, a New York Times opinion article by Vanessa Daniel.

    Daniel states, “the people who are overrepresented in success at social change — women of color who lead grass-roots nonprofits — are wildly underrepresented in funding. Only 0.6 percent of foundation giving was targeted to women of color in 2016. The record for individual donors is not much better.” Daniel outlines the main reasons women of color are shut out of funding, and argues “Every foundation ought to shift a majority of its giving to groups headed by people of color. We must write checks that support multi-issue organizing led by women of color on a large scale.”

    Check out the article, then join us for a conversation about how philanthropy can open more minds and coffers to supporting women of color! This is meant to be a time to discuss our own perspectives and experiences on the topics and questions presented in the article.

    Snacks provided by EPIP. We hope to see you there!
