A Philanthropy New York DECISION MAKERS program, presented by its Increasing Diversity in Philanthropy Committee and The New York City Collaborative for Fairness and Equity in Philanthropy.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: All interested funders and invited guests.


Communities of color, an unprecedented economic crisis, and billions in federal dollars for economic recovery: a recipe for transformation? It could be, but it isn't inevitable.
While the federal government is pouring almost $800 billion into existing safety-net programs, creating various competitive innovation funds for public infrastructure projects from education to broadband, and working rapidly on a phase-two job creation strategy, it is still unclear how much communities of color will benefit.
In this workshop, Maya Wiley, founder and executive director of the Center for Social Inclusion, will present information about the racial impacts of the recession and the tracking (or lack thereof) of the federal stimulus dollars. The subsequent discussion will focus on the implications for NYC-area funders and the nonprofits led by and/or serving communities of color.
