Tue, 12/11/2018
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

People of color with a high net worth are making significant investments, giving in creative ways and present in philanthropic and political initiatives across the country.  Yet they are not present in significant numbers in any existing donor network, nor are they networked with each other across race and background.  This workshop shares insights from the only national project that is researching the giving and engagement of HNW people of color.

Donors of Color Network: Learning from a Constituency That Will Forever Transform Philanthropy

People of color with a high net worth are making significant investments, giving in creative ways and present in philanthropic and political initiatives across the country.  Yet they are not present in significant numbers in any existing donor network, nor are they networked with each other across race and background.  This workshop shares insights from the only national project that is researching the giving and engagement of HNW people of color.  The workshop will present original data from 100 donors of color the team have interviewed and brainstorm with participants how the sector may need to change and grow to incorporate the perspectives and experiences of donors of color.  The interactive session will invite participants to respond to the data with their own experiences working with donors.
