After a year of protest, pandemic, and political momentum in 2020, a sea change in U.S.-based grantmaking for racial issues appeared to be underway. Small family foundations, mainstream and progressive national foundations, and corporations of all kinds pledged significant financial support that seemed to prioritize racial equity and racial justice. Headlines hyped these promises as a dramatic response from philanthropy to the uprisings against police brutality and widespread calls for true racial justice — popular activism on a massive scale that continued into the new year.
But what really happened in 2020? What is the true state of racial equity and racial justice philanthropy?
