The Grant Writers’ NETGroup invites you to join Ilana Kaufman, Founder & CEO of the Jews of Color Initiative, for a NETTalk on their new publication, Racial Equity-Informed Philanthropy: A Funder Resource from a Jewish Perspective. This anthology, published in partnership with Slingshot, is grounded in the perspectives of Jews of Color, histories of racism in the United States, real-world examples, and guidance for creating change. The book features dynamic chapters authored by multiracial leaders in the Jews of Color community, each grounded in their analysis, perspective, and life experiences. Racial Equity-Informed Philanthropy uses historical analysis, conceptual frameworks of equity and justice, and tools grounded in Torah, to show communal leaders how to rethink Jewish philanthropy for a more equitable, multiracial future.
While this book is focused on funders, there are many insights that will also be beneficial for those submitting grants for funding, staff and lay leadership involved with promoting DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) in their agencies and anyone with an interest in fostering inclusion. Utilizing a lens that is sensitive to issues of justice and equity, grant writers, agency staff and lay leadership have the opportunity to educate funders and others with whom their agencies engage about the diversity of the Jewish community and members’ needs. We look forward to an informative and lively discussion together.
