A Call to Action: Trustee Advocacy to Advance Opportunity for Black Communities in Philanthropy

Part rallying cry, part action plan, this Association of Black Foundation Executives report advocates for increasing the representation of black leadership among foundations’ staff, vendors, consultants, and grantees. Beyond advocacy, it recommends specific strategies for your clients to create opportunities for black professionals to lead and to build a pipeline of talent for the organization. The report also identifies opportunities for black professional services and vendors to do business with the philanthropic sector, as well as ways to expand foundation funding in black communities.
