RACE EQUITY GRANT FUND RECIPIENTS
Because the opportunity gap is greatest for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), SVP’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee established the Race Equity Fund as a participatory grantmaking effort that supports BIPOC-led grassroots organizations with unrestricted grants.
Our first cohort of eight nonprofits received grants of $25,000 each to pursue systems change in their respective sectors. Funding will assist the organizations in further developing and strengthening their capacity to address systemic inequities and to amplify their impact upon our communities.
The relationships we've established with these organization has helped us include community voice to a much greater extent and allows us to incorporate broader knowledge of communities in our work.
