NOTE: You will notice that we have an optional field above for you to share your racial and ethnic identity. We gather this information to help us better understand the racial and ethnic diversity of our donor base, and make intentional efforts to increase that diversity.
This is part of our racial equity commitment. How and from whom we fundraise has the opportunity to disrupt systemic racial inequity in two ways:
- As reparations - moving financial resources intentionally away from White control for the use and benefit of BIPOC individuals and communities; and
- As power redistribution - increasing the representation of BIPOC donors and BIPOC-led foundations to 50% by end of 2022 as a way to increase BIPOC influence within BB.
