Podcast – African American Philanthropy: A Culture of Generosity

Posted by Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) on August 18, 2020

At conferences and in the media, it has been common to refer to African Americans as a new and emerging demographic in charitable giving. However, they have participated in the practice in the United States for hundreds of years, and over the past decade, African American families have—more than any other racial group—contributed the largest portion of their wealth to charity.

If nonprofits and financial advisors are serious about working with African American communities, they must commit to diversity and inclusion across their organizations, and dedicate the resources to identify, solicit, and steward Black donors on their own terms. SSIR publisher Michael Voss speaks with Tyrone Freeman at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University and Stasia Washington at First Foundation Advisors.
