WHat is indeep?
Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in Environmental Philanthropy (InDEEP) is a professional development series that engages a network of foundation staff, including senior leaders, committed to integrating racial equity and social justice throughout their environmental philanthropy. We support environmental grantmakers to cultivate opportunities to increase funding for organizations led by people of color, embed a justice and equity lens to their grantmaking, and strengthen the capacities of grantee organizations and leaders across the field to create a more diverse and inclusive environmental movement.
what does indeep plan to do?
InDEEP’s intended outcomes are to instigate a net increase in the amount of grant dollars and contracting opportunities to organizations led by people of color; support the field as it transitions to greater inclusion among long-standing grantees; and enlist informal and formal commitments from foundation staff to dedicate funds to be allocated to groups led by people of color.
