Our Continued Commitment to Racial Equity

Advancing racial equity, diversity, and inclusion in philanthropy is a key pillar of work and core strategic priority at the Forum. We envision a courageous philanthropic sector that catalyzes a just and equitable society where all can participate and prosper. It is not possible for us to achieve this vision without addressing racial equity. Therefore, we fundamentally reject any attempt to distort, deliberately mischaracterize, or diminish the vital work underway in philanthropy to advance racial equity and racial justice.
