Rural Funders Series - Beginning and Deepening Your Racial Equity Journey

Host Organization: Philanthropy NW


In the last few years, many funders have adopted a racial equity lens for their work. However, many in the philanthropic sector have not considered what a racial equity lens looks like for rural funders. Since 2000, 84% of non-metro counties in the United States have seen increases in populations of color, but the funders in these areas often have not responded to these changes. As a rural funder, how can you start to incorporate a racial equity lens in communities faced with changing racial and ethnic demographics? How can rural funders begin to be a positive force in bridging historic racial divides? Join us for this session as we explore the history and currency of racially diverse rural communities and share advice for funders on how to engage and respond.

Philanthropy Northwest is partnering with Allen Smart of Philanthropy Worx to present this Rural Funder Series. In 2021, we will co-facilitate a series of six sessions where we will explore issues relevant to rural funders.
