Asian American Giving: Diversity focused funds: what makes them successful?: "The Diversity in Philanthropy Project recently released a study called, Social Catalysts: A Case Study of Fifteen Successful Diversity Focused Funds. The purpose was to put forth information about these funds so that more collaboration between these funds and mainstream foundations could take place. There are only a handful of ethnic based - community funds in the U.S., and these are naturally the places where individuals start from when looking to give in their own ethnic community. One would also assume that since these funds are closer to their community they can address problems that directly affect them with that much more impact and in a culturally appropriate way."
