Pushing for Diversity in Philanthropy
Farella's Wendy Hernandez and guest speaker, Afshan Paarlberg, assistant visiting professor at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, for the nonprofit industry program "Pushing for Diversity in Philanthropy."
A pressing question for many philanthropists is: how far can their push for diversity in grantmaking efforts go, without hindering their tax-exempt status? Grant recipients, alike, must comply with various regulatory and donor obligations without hindering their charitable activity. The panelists will discuss avenues for nonprofit organizations to achieve diversity while remaining compliant and maintaining their tax-exempt status, including a community-centered approach to promoting and celebrating diversity. We will conclude with an open forum Q&A and a virtual networking space for those interested in continuing the discussion on pushing for diversity in philanthropy.
