Philanos is providing a new list of resources for our affiliates to participate in learning and action during August’s 2020 Black Philanthropy Month. 

Affiliates, sign up for a virtual panel discussion entitled “Racial Equity in Fundraising and Philanthropy: What’s Next?” hosted by Women of Color on August 12, 2020, from 2-3 PM EDT. Cost is $50.00.

Get involved in the many virtual and in-person events offered nation-wide by Black Philanthropy Month.

For those of you actively working on DEI issues in your organizations, we want to remind you that we have built rich resource pages on DEI and Anti-Racism efforts.  We would like to augment these resources with lessons learned/best practices from our own affiliates, so if your organization has a specific initiative regarding some aspect of DEI or Anti-Racism efforts, please email us so we can share with the network.
