Nonprofit Quarterly: With Help from the Donors of Color Network, Two Organizations Are Creating Change
Nonprofit Quarterly – December 1, 2023

The Climate Funders Justice Pledge calls upon the top 40 funders in the United States to increase their funding of BIPOC-led organizations to at least 30 percent of their portfolios within the next two years. Started in 2021 by the Donors of Color Network, it also asks for transparent reporting of their grants and follow-through on philanthropic pledges made to BIPOC-led organizations. The Kresge Foundation is just one of the funders to get on board. They’ve supported the critical climate justice work of various BIPOC-led organizations, including the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice and Partnership for Southern Equity.
