AFP Webinar: Diversity in Philanthropy

July 24, 2019 | 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time | Online

The Future of Philanthropy and Why Diversity Matters

The IUPUI Lilly Family School of Philanthropy released a new report called Women Give 2019: Gender and Giving Across Communities of Color. This report examines the giving patterns, priorities, and attitudes of America’s wealthiest households and, in particular, explores the intersection of race, gender and giving. In 2019, Alford Group celebrates its 20th consecutive year as AFP’s diversity sponsor and partner. On this webinar, we spoke to the new report and contexted it with our history and first-hand knowledge/experience on this topic.
