About this event

This cohort is by invitation only. For more information on the Anti-Hate Training Cohort, please contact Lyn Hunter.

The January 6, 2021 U.S. capitol insurrection brought white supremacy, hate and violence to the forefront in our country. The rise of the racist fringe subculture, surges in domestic terrorism and race-based hate crimes has led many in philanthropy to ask how the growth of these groups is being funded.

What is the role of philanthropy in stopping the increase of hate groups and how might your foundation be inadvertently funding them?

The Anti-Hate Training Cohort is designed to support organizations in learning how to be confident stewards to their donors’ investments, and accountable to the communities who are often the target of rhetoric espousing hate and violence. This program will include four, 2-hour sessions designed to support your organization in exploring, creating and applying anti-hate measures at your foundation. 


May 11 Policy Development, Implementation and Due Diligence
Session one will consist of an in-depth self-assessment of current organizational protections against hate speech and a discussion on comparative policies within philanthropy and adjacent sectors.
May 18 Peer Learning Lab
Session two will support organizations in exploring how positional resources can be leveraged to advance policy. We will also explore the parameters for what might be deemed hateful or misaligned with organizational values.
May 25 Advanced Assessment and Donor Engagement Strategies
During session three, organizations will be called to consider where there are "gray areas" in philanthropy and trained on how to map hate groups and their affiliates.
June 1 Peer Learning Lab
Session four will aid organizations in establishing a plan to increase org-wide commitment to anti-hate policy creation, building accountability throughout both your organization and the region.

Who Should Attend?

Each participating organization will be asked to send a minimum of four representatives who hold positions in each of the following categories: 

  • Trustee/Board Member: With authority and responsibility for organizational governance 

  • CEO/ED or C-Suite Staff: With authority and responsibility for donor and organizational policy  

  • Senior Philanthropic Services/Donor Relations Staff: Responsible for frontline donor relationship strategy  

  • Senior Community Relations Staff: Responsible for frontline community partner strategy  

Interested in Participating?

Each cohort will very intentionally seek to address the nuanced needs of a different subsector of philanthropy (organizations of different types, sizes, etc.). As a result, this event is by invitation only. Please reach out to Lyn Hunter, our director of regional strategies and networks, for additional information and to see if your organization can join a future cohort.
