About this grant

The goal of this project is to build the internal and external capacity to work on racial equity at the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. The grantee has been building its capacity to work on these issues over several years, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to juggle multiple urgent priorities. The grantee plans to continue to address COVID-related issues, but will now prioritize racial equity through the appointment of a dedicated staff person to work on racial equity, further incorporating equity into its business model, implementing equity initiatives in the community and increasing local nonprofits’ understanding of structural racism.
