Framing the Conversation
See a qualitative analysis of interviews with 113 high-net-wealth Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) donors, conducted over three years in ten cities across the U.S.
There are nearly 1.32 million individuals of color with assets over $1 million.
Tens of thousands of people of color have assets greater than $30 million.
Understand the significant absence of resources—philanthropic and political capital—to support those working to advance racial, gender, and economic justice.
Language is imperfect and ever-changing.
For now, we’re using the term ‘communities of color.’ By that, we mean people from AAPI, AMENA, BIPOC, and Latinx(a/o/e) communities in all of their complexities and intersections.
We recognize that communities of color share inequitable experiences of oppression under settler colonialism. We see those struggles and shine a light on the joy and tenacity employed to seek freedom and justice.
Please see the APA’s guide for more direction on inclusive language.
