Responsive Philanthropy in Black Communities
ABFE’s understanding of the strengths and assets as well as root causes of disparities in Black communities enables it to bring innovative solutions to address the issues at their core. ABFE’s, Responsive Philanthropy in Black Communities (RPBC), helps organizations develop a racial equity lens in their grantmaking, thereby maximizing philanthropic investments.
This new template on RPBC builds upon grantmaking with a racial equity lens but is tailored specifically to grantmaking in and for Black communities. As a result, we have designed a set of defining characteristics of philanthropy that we believe is more likely to reduce gaps in racial disparities facing Blacks in the United States and are looking to partner with grantmakers around the country to apply this framework to their investments.
