PRE Goals and Strategies

PRE recognizes that there are a broad range of effective programs and practices to address racial inequities. There is an increasing level of sophistication within the racial justice field and much more awareness of which approaches meet which needs best.

Whether we are talking about ways to engage communities or ways to engage foundation staff and boards, PRE understands the importance of meeting people where they are on their own continua of learning and comfort level in addressing what can often be difficult and controversial issues. We also recognize that peer learning and support can be critical when facing these challenges, and we work to provide the space and tools that will allow this to happen.

PRE seeks to build both financial and programmatic resources to combat racism through the following strategies:

"PRE has been an invaluable resource and partner in our work to advance racial equity policies and practices within LGBTQ foundations and to increase resources for LGBTQ communities of color. We have benefited greatly from their astute analysis, their tools, and their unequivocal leadership in the philanthropic sector on issues of race and racial justice."

Please note that due to limited staff time and resources, PRE is not able to provide technical assistance to organizations seeking individual fundraising advice. In addition, PRE is not a grantmaking institution. For information on grant opportunities, visit the Foundation Center website.
