Delivering better funding for Black-led organisations and racial justice
Understanding what's needed and taking action
This discussion paper draws on – and directs readers to – research and campaign material from more than 20 Black-led and racial justice organisations, as well learning from funders and IVAR’s own work with organisations in this space. It begins with a brief summary of how Black-led and racial justice organisations experience the funding system, moving on to share some emerging ideas and practices to support better funding. We hope that this will both help to generate new thinking on the practical actions that funders can take to respond to the experience of Black-led and racial justice organisations, and support members of the Open and Trusting community and others who may – because of confidence or awareness or resources or history – find it difficult to initiate change.
