Jeff and Tricia Raikes, founders of the Seattle-based Raikes Foundation, are using their platform to push other donors to embrace and advance racial justice. In this Family Philanthropy Speaks conversation, Jeff and Tricia join Nick Tedesco to discuss how they have changed practices and acknowledged privilege throughout their donor journey. Jeff shares the value of diversifying their network, which opens the doors to new grantees and opportunities for impact. Tricia describes a revelatory moment that changed her views on youth homelessness and notes the need to embrace discomfort as she grapples with her own understanding of racial inequity.
