Jennifer Wizel
43:56
Molly, what percentage of total grant making budget is being allocated to this unrestricted giving to BIPOC-led organizations? Thank you.
Mayuri Chandra
44:36
when you say "relationship-based" how did those relationships get introduced ?
Liz Chen
45:06
Molly, how are you selecting BIPOC leaders based on relationships forged?
Armando Castellano, He/Him
48:27
Ramp ups for BIPOC leaders and communities can be great than others
Stephanie/Raikes Fdn (she/her)
49:27
Sonya - absolutely! We are a spend out and also push others to spend out and give in ways that let community lead (multiyear, gen op, etc.)
Armando Castellano, He/Him
49:35
Historical lack of access to philanthropy is a big cause.
Molly Norton (she/her)
49:44
our grants started with organizations that we have gotten to know through our colleagues and community networks and volunteering. And then as we dove deeper into intentionally funding bipoc-led organizations, we spent time talking to organizations and asking them who else was working in the community that we might not know about, and have made an effort to get outside of our network and look for new organizations.
Armando Castellano, He/Him
49:54
Lack of cultural competency that funders have to reach those communities
Krystal Kincaid (they/them)
50:01
Quick reminder to use the Q+A feature for your questions as well! This will give panelists a chance to get to some of these great questions when we have designated time a little bit later!
Kristi Kimball
56:25
Stephanie - thanks for brining up the point about diversifying your network. Super important!
Molly Norton (she/her)

i'll echo what Armando is saying: I had one on one conversations with people before bringing big ideas to a group of decision makers.

+1 Kishshana! Also, Armando thanks for all those concrete, tangible ways to navigate proximity to whiteness!

Happy to share and practicing and modeling vulnerability.
Julia Renaud

Thanks @Julia.
Mary ODonnell
01:20:13
I love the phrase that Troy just used when he addressed Molly. He said "Molly, I'm happy to make space or take space." I'm going to steal that one!
Elliot Berger
01:20:23
Thank, Troy! Most impressive and super helpful. All of us in the audience appreciate each of the insights of the panelists and your leadership in this space. Elliot
Sonia Park
01:20:49
Thank you everyone, this has been a great conversation!
Stephanie/Raikes Fdn (she/her)
01:23:51
+1000 the unknown unknowns are the thing we need to most look out for
Armando Castellano
01:26:27
Get this question all the time
Renee Reso
01:26:40
Great question and how to build those relationships from funder side to the nonprofits as well
Armando Castellano
01:26:53
Huge problem, yes hardest question!
Armando Castellano
01:27:12
Philanthropic systems are not set up to give folks like that access
Amanda Finney
01:27:38
Sometimes you can hire a consultant for grants, and the consultant is well-known among the funders and can may an introduction for you.
Mary ODonnell
01:28:32
Can you repeat the name of the funds that Stephanie just mentioned?
Stephanie/Raikes Fdn (she/her)
01:29:22
Hi Mary- JustFund is a platform where organizers/groups can submit one application, and donors can find them
Mary ODonnell
01:29:42
Thanks Stephanie!
Kristi Kimball (she/her)
01:29:58
Adding an open LOI process could help. Trying some participatory grantmaking processes could help with access as well.
Summer Migliori Soto
01:30:08
Being a connector is key! That’s something our grantees and movement leaders often share with us as a helpful way to provide support outside of financial resources
Denise Yoachum
01:30:25
This has been most compelling. Where can we learn more about this program? I'd like to share it with my network.
Stephanie/Raikes Fdn (she/her)
01:30:33
At Giving Compass, we have a dataset of "issue funds" that also that work to get money closer to the ground and that run participatory, open processes, etc.
Amanda Finney
01:30:57
I see hiring the consultant as paying to grow fundraising more than pay to play. But ultimately, the funders are the ones that need to transform into connectors, not the grantees jumping through hoops.
Amanda Finney
01:31:29
I speak as a former fundraiser and now a funder
Stephanie Cornell
01:31:35
It
Hannah (she/her) - Capital Collaborative
01:31:36
Denise, https://www.camelbackventures.org/capitalcollaborative has it all, but we will share more specifics at the end as well! Thanks for asking :)
Stephanie Cornell
01:31:47
It’s on funders to help open doors to other funders
Krystal Kincaid (they/them)
01:32:28
Thanks for coming Summer!
Molly Norton (she/her)
01:33:36
I also wonder with smaller foundations if you could just write their main email address and say "I don't have access to people who might intro me to your foundation, but my work is aligned with what you are doing and I would love a chance to introduce my work". Maybe there's a chance to educate the foundation, which shouldn't be up to you, but....
Rae Miller
01:35:44
Knowledge is power…
Lauren Asher
01:36:34
Making it easy to see your current (and past) grants is one simple, if not at all sufficient, way for prospective grantees to find connections in their field or community who can introduce them to you.
Armando Castellano
01:37:29
Vulnerability is what Molly is talking about!
Armando Castellano
01:37:40
Risk taking
Armando Castellano
01:38:54
Well said Stephanie, yes, do that!
Molly Norton (she/her)
01:39:22
Totally agree with Stephanie
Rae Miller
01:39:45
Access to the room is the foundation…
Amanda Finney
01:41:09
As to risk, I heard at a conference in 2019 a service provider speaker said to a great hall full of funders: of all the people who have the least risk in this sector, it's the funders, so we funders must take the step first in the direction of DEI.
Stephanie Cornell
01:41:29
Will you put those in the chat, Armando?
Tania Dall
01:41:38
