Reading & Resources: August 2020

We celebrated Black Philanthropy Month with words of wisdom from Black leaders in the sector (and a few thoughts on what philanthropy can learn from Black giving)...

...thought back on the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act in July

… and looked at how leaders and communities are (or are not) encouraged and supported.

  • Girls Leadership’s Ready to Lead report looked at leadership supports and barriers for Black and Latinx girls, finding that while Black and Latinx girls were most likely to see themselves as leaders, bias and fear were both major barriers in their leadership journeys.
  • In Nonprofit AF, Vu Lee called out philanthropy for failing to support BIPOC leaders and calls on the sector to let BIPOC leaders lead, support them while they are leading, and protect them when they are undergoing challenges
  • NCRP's latest report, Black Funding Denied, showed a lack of community foundation support for Black communities and calls on community foundations to address this grantmaking disparity.
  • Looking for some leaders to follow on Twitter? Funders for LGBTQ’s Top LGBTQ Philanthropoids to follow on Twitter in 2020 is out and as always it is an amazing lineup.
