Walking the Talk: How Foundations Can Use New Data to Better Fund Racial Equity and Justice

Justiceis 2024 Gfe Webinar Recap

The data is in: K-12 philanthropic sector is drastically underfunding racial equity and justice work, and the level of investment has actually dropped since 2020.

We held a frank and honest discussion of Schott’s new Justice Is The Foundation education grantmaking data, lessons from racial justice funders and grassroots advocates, and next steps that funders should take.

Watch to learn grantmaking strategies — regardless of our budgets or program areas — to respond to this historic moment and opportunity by making transformative investments in racial equity and justice work.
