Marga Incorporated provides strategic advice and research to philanthropic initiatives and community partnerships. Marga's Race and Equity in Philanthropy Group (REPG), created in 2006, brings together foundations that are committed to improving their ability to effectively promote racial equity and inclusion in their policies, systems, and practices. Through peer learning, member foundations are able to incorporate new ideas and practices into their institutional efforts, which can lead to transformative change.
This paper provides concrete examples of how REPG member foundations are strategically communicating their commitment to racial equity and inclusion both internally and externally. Eight foundations from REPG's membership were interviewed to develop the profiles featured in the paper.
