Channeling Our Collective Power to Create a Just & Equitable Multiracial Future

Wealthy people of color, BIPOC-led organizations, and movement leaders are coming together to build a new philanthropic power base committed to driving cross-class, cross-racial solidarity and racial justice.

"Donors of color are essential to the story of our collective liberation. The transformative, generous, strategic contributions of people of color are no longer in the shadows but centered in philanthropy. DOCN was founded to pull our community of donors out of isolation, to build power together, and to make meaningful contributions to today's racial justice movement."
