Grants Made to Advance Giving Among Emerging Donor Communities :: PNNOnline ::: "Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors has announced the inaugural grantees of the Cultures of Giving Fund, an innovative initiative created by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to empower emerging donor communities – notably the African American, Latino, Asian American, Native American and underserved immigrant communities – to lead, develop and grow philanthropic resources that address community causes. Grants totaling $1.59 million were awarded to 14 non-profit organizations across the United States and include six challenge grants to stimulate and increase the impact of giving from donors from the targeted communities. The remaining eight grants support the development and dissemination of training tools and other services to help community-based organizations engage these donors and strengthen their connections to social change issues."
