60 Foundations Promise Major Giving to Underserved, Advocacy

Congratulations to the National Committee for Responsve Philanthropy for today's announcement:

More than 60 leading foundations from across the country that together give close to $2.5 billion a year in grants to nonprofit organizations promised to dedicate the majority of their giving to benefit underserved communities and a substantial amount to strategies that address the root causes of social problems, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) announced today.

Foundations and other grantmaking organizations that have voluntarily signed on to NCRP’S  Philanthropy’s Promise initiative will allocate at least 50 percent of their grant dollars to address the unique needs of the poor, elderly, disabled and other marginalized groups, and at least 25 percent towards supporting advocacy, community organizing and civic engagement to promote equity, opportunity and justice.

The list of 60 participating foundations can be found in their press release.
