Quantifying Hope Panel Discussion in SF

A recording of this event is now available! Check it out.

From Ferguson, Missouri to Staten Island, New York, from Baltimore, Maryland to Charleston, South Carolina, the highly publicized killings of Black men and boys have brought new attention to issues of race and racism in the U.S.

In this historic moment, it is more critical than ever to understand what philanthropy is doing (and can do) to support Black men and boys.

Join us in San Francisco as we examine the funding landscape and also invite an all-star panel of Bay Area foundation leaders to discuss local efforts.
