Leaning into Racial Justice with the Surdna Foundation and Andrus Family Fund

Amid a national reckoning with race and the pandemic, foundations are leaning into racial justice like never before.

In this Community Conversation, the Surdna Foundation and Andrus Family Fund will explore their decision to increase funding for racial justice, how they are approaching this work, and what comes next for the sector in this rapidly changing giving landscape.
