Our Strategic Focus: Racial Equity Philanthropic Fund

We believe transforming the world for the better requires an intentional, explicit, and sustained focus on advancing racial equity. For too long, racial inequity has permeated spaces that are supposed to achieve social progress and change systems—social innovation is no exception. At Echoing Green, we are building upon our existing commitment to investing in next-generation leadership to ensure that the social innovation field is an essential actor in the longstanding racial justice movement.
