The Clinton School Center on Community Philanthropy is excited to announce the 2022 Community Philanthropy Advancing Equity Award. This opportunity is offered to nonprofits, grassroots organizations, for-profits, faith-based groups, and individuals 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 seeking applicants who are working 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 $5,000 - $10,000.
