Reparations Resources

Hello all,

A client has asked me to explore the possibility of including reparations as part of an economic development grantmaking portfolio. I would love to talk with or hear from others who have explored or implemented similar work. In particular, I’m interested in learning more about how foundations evaluate and select an approach (direct grantmaking, pooled funds, or intermediaries such as Borealis Philanthropy); strategies related to direct payments to individuals; advocacy in support of federal, state and local legislation; and incorporating expertise from Black and Indiginous communities, especially within smaller private and family foundations. 
Many thanks for all the insight and expertise offered here.
