What True Equality and Solidarity in Nonprofit Looks Like

Funding and resource allocations to:

  • Small and mid-sized Black-led tax-exempt 501(c) nonprofits with annual revenues under $500,000 per year.

  • Nonprofit start-ups founded and led by Blacks, including foundations.

  • Black nonprofit consultants to provide mandatory diversity training to majority-White led nonprofits who are receiving support from the #BlackLIvesMatter protests.

  • All Civil Rights organizations, such as Dr. King's Southern Christian Leadership Council (SCLC) and their national affiliates.

  • Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) to create or expand nonprofit centers and provide mentors for younger generations who have an interest in the nonprofit sector.

Nonprofit boards should also follow the impressive, and heartfelt, lead of Alexis Ohanian, the founder and former CEO of Reddit, who stated after he resigned his board seat so it could be filled by someone Black, "I believe resignation can be an act of leadership from people in power right now."

The real, long-lasting, sustainable solutions for the nonprofit sector must be led by Blacks, not by taking the hand of others to lead us or having us wait for crumbs to fall off the table.

#BlackLivesMatter even in the nonprofit world.
