Philanthropy Always Sounds Like Someone Else: A Portrait of High Net Worth Donors of Color

This report highlights the giving practices of high net worth (HNW) donors of color. Until recently, Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) with HNW and ultra-high net worth (UHNW) have been an apparitional presence across philanthropic and nonprofit sectors. Yet, emerging research shows that there are at least 1.3 million HNW households of color in the United States with net liquid assets of one million dollars or more. The report research demonstrates that HNW donors of color have great potential to move millions of dollars and inspire other hidden figures in philanthropy.
