The under-served in America have a new helping hand… Or sixty-one new hands, rather. 61 new corporations signed on to Philanthropy’s Promise, a coalition of charitable donors hoping to help those most in need. In addition to those affected by race based crimes, the impoverished, and other historically oppressed groups, The LBGTQ community serves to benefit from this philanthropic coalition.
“Research shows that not all types of grants are equal. Some have more impact and are more effective than others at making a real difference in the lives of people and communities, especially those in most need,” said Aaron Dorfman, executive director of National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy. “The public statements submitted by those that have signed on show the variety of ways that foundations are meeting their goals, and we hope it has an inspirational effect on others.”
There are many causes on Earth that need donated assistance, and those causes tend to spread the generosity of donors pretty thin. Philanthropy’s Promise looks to bring the focus back on the people who are in most need of charitable money: The under represented of America.
