About this grant

The Tides Center sponsors and provides financial and human services and administrative oversight to nearly 200 projects nationwide that fit in three program areas: 1) community development and services; 2) environment and health; and 3) policy, strategy, and global initiatives. This grant continues support for the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity, a program of the Tides Center. Begun in 2003, the program’s goal is to build the amount and effectiveness of resources aimed at combating institutional and structural racism through capacity building, education, and convening grantmakers and grantseekers. Major activities include conducting workshops with regional associations of grantmakers and other funders, testing and assessing tools to measure the impact of racial equity grantmaking, and producing papers and reports related to grantmaking issues in the field of racial equity.
