Meeting the Challenge of the Pandemic: Minority Organizations and Philanthropy

What are the challenges facing minority-led and minority-focused small to mid-sized organizations today, particularly as we navigate the Covid-19 pandemic? How can we communicate those needs to funders, and policy makers becoming more increasingly concerned with racial equity? What are some of the key steps to establishing or expanding our development and public policy efforts to address these challenges?

Meet Jocelyn V. Sargent, former Executive Director of the Hyams Foundation and Executive Strategic Consultant to the New Commonwealth Racial Equity and Social Justice Fund, whose goal is to raise more than $100m to help Black- and brown-led organizations working on issues such as policing and criminal justice reform, health care equity, economic empowerment and youth civic engagement. In a special online dialogue together with Leandrea Brantle, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Victory Human Services, Inc., they will explore the what it takes for minority led organizations to survive and thrive in a pandemic, tips for focusing your development efforts, and what funders are looking for in this quickly-changing environment. Bring your questions for a lively exchange of information!
