This month, our focus has been on the resources in our Giving Tuesday toolkit, including:
- Stifled Generosity: How Philanthropy Has Fueled the Accumulation & Privatization of Wealth, a timeline of the impact of philanthropy from 1913 to the present from Justice Funders Today
- Funding Community Organizing, Changing Lives, a call-to-action to fund community organizing and a look at the impact it has already had on key social justice issues by NCRP
- Give Big, Give Now, Keep Giving for Social Justice, guidance on giving for social justice from Resource Generation
How we give and who we give to are vital as we work to build a more just world. As Vanessa Daniel noted in her recent New York Times opinion piece, Philanthropists Bench Women of Color, M.V.P.s of Social Change, only 0.6 percent of foundation funding was targeted to women of color in 2016, despite the strides they have made in creating change.
