Program Focus: To support community foundation efforts to become more deliberate in their work to advance racial equity in their communities, ABFE has partnered with the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to provide training geared toward building and strengthening competencies on these issues. This program is designed to help trustees and staff of community foundations foster a deeper understanding and shared appreciation for what it means to advance racial equity as an organization, both operationally and programmatically. Ideally, we will be able to extend this program to every community foundation that is interested in embedding racial equity within its internal and external policies and practice.
Participating community foundations will receive focused racial equity trainings for community foundation staff, senior leadership, and trustees equipping them with the shared knowledge, skills, and tools needed to better understand the foundations of race, racism, and racial equity.
