Funding Social Movements Matters More Than Ever
During the 2020 uprisings against anti-Black racism and amidst a global pandemic, every sector in the United States, including philanthropy, condemned systemic injustice and committed to implementing more equitable policies and practices within their institutions. Three years later, it remains vital for foundations to support social change movements, from emergence to infrastructure to sustainability. Butler Family Fund reflects with colleagues on the opportunity and challenges of supporting social movements.
