The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service Center on Community Philanthropy is committed to promoting racial equity across the Delta region. As a part of this effort, The Center is excited to announce the Community Philanthropy Advancing Equity Award.
This exciting opportunity is offered to nonprofits, individuals, or faith-based groups who demonstrate innovative ways to promote equity and inclusion in their communities. This award seeks to encourage those who, through committing time and resources to expand diverse leadership within their communities, recognize the struggles specific to marginalized populations – particularly children and youth.
The Center is looking for applicants who utilize resources in their community to foster racial healing and promote racial equity. This award aims to serve those who are using innovative solutions to address inequalities in their communities and advance progress towards inclusion. These solutions should encourage the development of a pro-equity culture within their communities, while also making incremental, measurable, and visible progress towards racial equity.
The Advancing Equity Award will range from $2,500 – $5,000.

- Organization’s history or individual accomplishments

Applicants must submit the one-page letter of interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 20, 2017. All applicants will receive an email acknowledging receipt of their proposal.
