About this grant

This grant continues general purpose support to the Association of Black Foundation Executives, an organization whose members are staff or board members of corporate and foundation grantmaking organizations. Recent accomplishments include the promotion of fellowship program participants to leadership roles such as president and trustee; the release of two major research reports and a number of publications related to philanthropy in the black community; partnerships with other key identity-based affinity groups; and a significant increase in membership. Over the next two years, the association will continue its work to encourage increased funding of issues critical to the black community; conduct collaborative efforts with other philanthropic membership organizations; and promote the status, development, and number of black professionals in philanthropy.
