HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Black men and boys face: regular experiences with racial profiling, disproportionate rates of arrest and incarceration, lack of educational opportunities, and inadequate job prospects. Amidst these recent activities and movement building efforts, much remains to be done for us to move from increased attention to structural inequities to increased investment and innovation that creates lasting progress in social and economic opportunities for Black men. It is against this backdrop that we publish this research brief, shining a light on the ways in which foundations are supporting pathways to achievement and changing the narrative for Black men and boys. In this report, a follow-up to ‘Where Do We Go From Here? Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys’, we revisit foundation funding in support of Black men and boys, providing an updated analysis on funding trends and a closer look at recent initiatives in the field.
