About AFN

The Asset Funders Network engages philanthropy to advance equitable wealth building and economic mobility.

Our Network

Our network of grantmakers—private, public, corporate, and community foundations—invest in policies, programs, and financial products as tools for confronting inequities.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Asset Funders Network is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our organization. Our first report shares where we are in creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization and aligning our internal practices with external strategies furthering equitable opportunities and outcomes.

“As a family foundation, our trustees—who do all our grant making directly—need well researched information for a wide but increasingly inter-related set of issues. Not only does AFN give us the best information, but the grantees funded through AFN members are doing cutting edge, frontline work. AFN members and staff are leading thoughtful, provocative conversations about the key issues impacting philanthropy today. Join—you won’t regret it.”
