In February 2019, Sludge broke the story that Donor Advised Fund platforms, including the philanthropic arm of major financial institutions – Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, Schwab Charitable Fund, and Vanguard Charitable – have been making grants to more than 30 hate groups through donor-advised funds (DAFs), totaling over $11 million dollars between 2014-2017.
A month later, Amalgamated Foundation launched the Hate is Not Charitable Campaign as a call to action for philanthropy: for DAF providers to filter out hate and for donors of conscience to take a stand. Since March, over 80 philanthropic institutions have signed on, with the list continuing to grow.
NFG has partnered with Amalgamated Foundation in developing a three-part webinar series to open a critical conversation in philnathropy about our role in fighting white nationalism; foster a collaborative space for funders to talk and collaborate, in partnership with the field; and foster momentum for collective action towards creating real obstacles to moving money to hate groups.
Join us for Part 2 of this webinar series to learn how you can take action and screen out grantmaking that supports hate, following strategies implemented by other leaders in philanthropy.
