WHAT: Communities Foundation of Texas and Dallas Women's Foundation will host a free discussion entitled Diversity in Philanthropy: Understanding, Engaging and Networking the High Net Worth Donor of Color, in partnership with The Vaid Group and Faces of Giving.
Hear from Urvashi Vaid, Tuhina De O'Connor and Hali Lee as they present their groundbreaking research on engaging and networking high net worth donors of color. The study includes a landscape analysis that examines the giving patterns and priorities of high net worth people of color. It finds that, while these donors are generous and philanthropically engaged, they are often invisible to mainstream philanthropy and largely not even known to each other. The research team will also share findings from interviews with dozens of high net worth donors of color and leaders of existing donor networks, as well as present lessons learned from previous attempts to organize donors of color.
The research team will present their observations and recommendations, including the potential development of a network of high net worth donors of color interested in funding racial and social justice. This potential network could coalesce the community of high net worth people of color, elevating the reach and impact of their experiences, resources and talents at a critically important time.
