2017-02-19T12:07:39+00:00

Today, I raise the question for philanthropy, particularly for white and non-black people of color donors and foundation staff: what more is required of us to advance racial justice? It is a question I have been grappling with as a biracial Sri Lankan/white American working in philanthropy.

Police Shootings Since Ferguson Put Foundations to the Test

2016-10-27T18:47:00+00:00

In cities hit by such crises, one wing of philanthropy is often at the center of reform and policy efforts, while another is supporting activists applying pressure from outside the process. The two sides don’t always work in isolation; some grant makers back both approaches. Still, there are tensions over strategy and tactics, and questions about philanthropy’s proper role in the push for change.
