Reading & Resources: February 2021

This month, we’re celebrating Black History Month by lifting up reading that brings an equity analysis to philanthropy.

We’re also getting actionable advice from leaders in the sector…

  • Eight experts in philanthropy shared their insights on the changes in philanthropy in 2020 and what they hope for and expect from the sector in 2021. 
  • Melissa Sines of PEAK Grantmaking suggested ways for grantmakers to courageously change the way they practice philanthropy, with suggestions ranging from being more explicit about risk to increasing payouts.
  • Deepa Iyer of Building Movement Project shared four ways to begin moving from resistance to rebuilding in the wake of a new administration, including making space for reckoning and repair, demonstrating solidarity, and nurturing newly formed ecosystems.
  • Andy Carroll and Jason Sabo at Exponent Philanthropy gave advice to small funders on how and why to engage in advocacy work, including listening to grantees and the community, and working with broader advocacy coalitions.

...and exploring the resources shared by EPIP chapters across the country.
