Freedom Funders: Philanthropy and the Civil Rights Movement

This resource includes three approaches that today’s foundations can learn from the Freedom Funders in our ongoing fight to protect civil rights:

  1. Grantmakers should intentionally prioritize underserved communities in developing and implementing strategy.
  2. They should involve those most affected by injustice, such as by funding organizations committed to grassroots organizing and advocacy.
  3. They should utilize tools such as equity analysis to examine structural barriers that keep certain communities from equal life opportunities.

Anything less and foundations risk reinforcing the very inequities they claim to address.
