Power Within, Power Without, Power Throughout

Racial Equity: Changing Power Dynamics in Philanthropy

This summer, FCCP is excited to bring you a brand new opportunity, the Summer Equity + Power Sharing Series, which will explore different integrations of racial equity, building power throughout democratic ecosystems, and improving philanthropy’s corresponding role in as much. Together, we will examine changes in practices after the 2016 elections, stand alone vs. integrated approaches to this work, and how we can change grantmaking strategies for the better.

Centering racial equity is critical to supporting and building power throughout philanthropy. In recent years, our understanding of how to best to actually center racial equity throughout our efforts has evolved and is increasingly touching all areas of our work, from organizing and structural reforms to money in politics and more.

Our July discussion will interrogate how evaluation frameworks can perpetuate or improve power dynamics between grantees and grantmakers, and our August program will focus on a case study, such as the intended and unintended consequences that funders can have on movement building.

We hope that you will join us for all three important conversations!
