Women of Color are underrepresented in major philanthropic circles. As a result, we and the causes we care about do not benefit from the networks along with the care and attention given to these networks and the causes they support.
While often viewed as recipients of charity, marginalized populations give a higher percent of their income to philanthropic causes. Giving takes on various forms, from tithing to pooled community giving, communities across the world have established philanthropic practices that have existed for generations.
Women of Color Give is a giving circle that has pulled elements of various cultural traditions together to create a space for women of color to connect, leverage our resources while supporting each other and the causes that matter to us.
