REGISTRATION CLOSED:Quantifying Hope: Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 10:00 am - 12:00 pm  PT
In-person | San Francisco, CA
Free

From Ferguson, Missouri to Staten Island, New York, from Baltimore, Maryland to Charleston, South Carolina, the highly publicized killings of Black men and boys have brought new attention to issues of race and racism in the United States. These events have helped fuel the growing #BlackLivesMatter movement, highlighting the urgency of supporting Black communities broadly, while also lifting up the issues faced by Black men and boys in particular.

In this historic moment, it is more critical than ever to understand what philanthropy is doing (and can do) to support Black men and boys. This event will feature highlights from a new report published by Foundation Center and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement. The report examines the philanthropic funding landscape for Black men and boys, including trends, activities that are being supported, and active foundations in the field.

A panel discussion among Bay Area foundation leaders will follow, lifting up local efforts to support Black men and boys, lessons learned, and future directions for this work.
