Closing the Gender Wealth Gap Forum: Equity in Grantmaking – Sep 23

Posted by Women's Way on September 21, 2021

Despite increased efforts to advance equity by the philanthropic sector, statistics still show that there are funding practices that perpetuate harmful inequities. Nonprofits led by and serving marginalized communities remain chronically underfunded, and equitable grantmaking for those populations remains scarce.

Statistics show that only 7% of philanthropic dollars goes towards organizations led by and serving Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and POC communities. Even further, only 3% goes towards organizations serving disabled people. Trans communities, meanwhile, receive only .015% “or a penny for every $100.”

To learn more, join WOMEN’S WAY for a powerful panel discussion about centering equity in grantmaking and drivers of the gender wealth gap. This is an online event on September 23, 2021 from 4-5:30 PM EST.

Moderated by:

Shira Hodges: Interim President, Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia

Panelists Include:

  • Elicia Gonzales: Executive Director, Women’s Medical Fund
  • Farrah Parkes: Executive Director, Gender Justice Fund
  • Jennifer Leith: Executive Director, The Douty Foundation
