United Philanthropy Forum’s “Journey Toward Racial Equity” report examines Philanthropy-Serving Organizations’ (PSOs) current internal work and external programming to advance racial equity. The report represents the latest in an effort by PSOs to advance philanthropic practice and impact by centering racial equity.
Written by some members of the Forum’s Racial Equity Committee together with Community Centered Evaluation & Research, the report is based on findings of the Forum’s inaugural Racial Equity Capacity Assessment for PSOs. Nearly three-quarters of Forum members completed the assessment, as did the Forum. The Racial Equity Capacity Assessment and this report were realized through the contribution and efforts of many individuals. The Forum is grateful to be on this journey with all the individuals who made this effort possible and deeply appreciates their thought partnership and commitment to advancing racial equity.
