United Philanthropy Forum is committed to advancing racial equity in philanthropy. We provide space for our members to connect, learn, and share together how to effectively address racial equity in their work as philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs), and work to share our members’ learnings with the broader philanthropy field. As part of these efforts, we are pleased to share four new case stories from our members about their racial equity work. In case you missed it check out the 2020 series of Racial Equity Case Stories.
