At D5, we believe in the importance of showcasing the work being done to advance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the field. The following post is the first in our ongoing series: Building the Movement: Voices of Leaders Working to Advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Philanthropy.
by Valerie Oliver-Durrah, President and CEO, Neighborhood Technical Assistance Clinic
All of us have the potential to be philanthropists. Philanthropy is the desire to promote the welfare of others—and that’s something that we can find within ourselves, and not just within the walls of foundations.
In mid-January, the Neighborhood Technical Assistance Clinic, a nonprofit technical assistance provider based in New York City, launched our strategy to raise awareness of the cross-cutting impacts of philanthropy—and of all of our roles as philanthropists in our communities. To start the conversation, we showed I Am A Philanthropist at the College of Staten Island. The film, produced by D5 and the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, demonstrates how philanthropy is more effective—and our communities stronger—when the philanthropists themselves come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and give in different ways.
