Defend Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

The current “great retrenchment on racial justice funding” threatens to close the doors of many DEI organizations, including Embracing Equity, as Stacey Abrams and Julián Castro describe in their article, "It’s Open Season on Civil Rights. Philanthropy Must Not Retreat".


To sustain our work and continue to build on the movement for racial justice, we are turning to dedicated partners like you. Please support Embracing Equity’s goal of raising $30,000 by December 31st.

Your donation will fuel our vital work and allow us to implement our self-sustaining funding strategy by 2025. It's an ambitious target, but one that we believe you can help us achieve in defense of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Multiple foundations are closing down their DEI portfolios, which has directly injured Embracing Equity. As a nonprofit, our budget is 60% dependent on fundraising to exist and offer our programming at an accessible sliding scale.

Your donation will not only help us persist in our transformative work, but also support our ongoing efforts to ensure that Embracing Equity's doors remain open to all who believe in our mission. Your support is more critical than ever. Donate today to make a difference!

Explore Ways to Make a Meaningful Impact:
  • Make a Donation: Every dollar you contribute brings us one step closer to our $30,000 goal. Your support helps us continue our work and expand our impact.
  • Become a Patron: Consider making a monthly donation to Embracing Equity. Your financial support directly aids our efforts to create equitable learning environments and partner with under-resourced educators and organizations.
  • Year End Fundraising Drive: Want to contribute through a DAF or corporate matching? Please email
  • Advocate for Embracing Equity: Use your voice and influence to raise awareness about DEIB challenges and encourage others to join our mission.
