From Rapid Response to Empowerment Economics: Funder Strategies for Shifting Wealth and Power Beyond 2020
This brief synthesizes key insights from interviews held with staff working in foundations across the United States and provides strategic recommendations for increasing equity in philanthropy. We highlight Empowerment Economics as a framework that can help philanthropic leaders sustain and build on this critical work. Ultimately, by continuing to engage funders and community leaders on issues related to power, funding strategies, and racial and economic justice, our goal is to collectively build a more equitable policy landscape.
