We are a private, national foundation that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and community development in Detroit.
In December 2019, the Kresge Foundation’s Leadership and Infrastructure Funding Team (LIFT) hosted a Talent Funder Convening. A total of 21 funders met to share peer learnings in their efforts to support nonprofit leaders’ diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) capacity building. Community Wealth Partners developed an evaluation report to summarize the key takeaways from the convening. It includes recommendations and examples from a variety of approaches, as well as challenges and ongoing questions the field is grappling with.
