In February 2019, Sludge broke the story that donor-advised fund platforms, including the philanthropic arm of major financial institutions – Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, Schwab Charitable Fund and Vanguard Charitable – have been making grants to more than 30 hate groups through donor-advised funds (DAFs), totaling over $11 million dollars between 2014-2017.
A month later, Amalgamated Foundation launched the Hate is Not Charitable Campaign as a call to action for philanthropy: for DAF providers to filter out hate and for donors of conscience to take a stand. Since March, over 80 philanthropic institutions have signed on, with the list continuing to grow.
Neighborhood Funders Group has partnered with Amalgamated Foundation in developing a three-part webinar series to open a critical conversation in philanthropy about our role in fighting white nationalism; foster a collaborative space for funders to talk and collaborate, in partnership with the field; and foster momentum for collective action towards creating real obstacles to moving money to hate groups.
Join us for part 3 of this webinar series to learn how you can join others in taking collective action in philanthropy to build pressure on donor-advised fund institutions and move money away from hate groups.
