Generations of Giving

Publication Date: 
January, 2009

Generosity is a hallmark of every race, ethnicity and tribe. But for almost a century, the donors who earned their money during America’s Industrial Age have dominated the philanthropic landscape.

Now the spotlight is turning to communities of color that are joining these donors in a global quest to relieve human suffering. Communities of color are amassing wealth, formalizing their giving, and creating new defi nitions of organized philanthropy. These racial, ethnic and tribal communities have their own ideas about grantmaking and their own structures for giving money away.

This brochure will explain why grantmaking within communities of color is important, how racial, ethnic and tribal philanthropists structure their giving, and how you can support these donors.
