Philanthropic Equity in Action: A Case Study of Place and Race


In 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and a nationwide racial justice reckoning, many foundations and corporations made commitments to advance racial equity. The question isn’t why this work is critical, but rather: How can we do it effectively, equitably, and impactfully?

Come learn about Community Progress Makers (CPM), a philanthropic initiative of the Citi Foundation in partnership with the Urban Institute. CPM employs research-based best practices in grantmaking to advance the work of racial equity among community-based organizations, ensuring grantee partners don’t just weather the storm of COVID and related economic vicissitudes, but thrive.

CPM grantee partners, Citi Foundation, and the Urban Institute will share lessons learned, early wins, and insights with the field. Presenters will share a day in the life of a grantee partner from the CPM cohort: What are they solving, where are they spending their time, and how have additional resources changed their work and impact? You’ll then have an opportunity to participate in a decision-making exercise using real-life examples from the last three cohort of CPM grantees. Presenters will provide handouts for the CPM decision-making journey that you  can use as a tool within their own institutions.
