Philanthropy News Digest: To increase support for BIPOC-led climate work, foundations must get creative. Here’s how.

Justice Outside CEO and President Kim Bailey Moore co-authored an op-ed alongside Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Program Officer Danielle Levoit and William Penn Foundation Program Officer Michele Perch about our Liberated Paths grantmaking program and the need for philanthropic organizations to invest in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color-led efforts. Here’s the link to the article and a short excerpt: 

“The philanthropic sector is reckoning with a long history of systems that have excluded Black, Indigenous, and People of Color-led work from the funding table, and we are therefore uniquely positioned to dismantle those same systems to advance racial equity and social justice… We urge our colleagues within and across the philanthropic community to join us in supporting more Black, Indigenous, and People of Color-led organizations, collaborating for greater impact and implementing funding solutions that come with less paperwork and fewer restrictions.”
