About the Networks
Grantmakers of Color, established in 2005, is a network of people of color who work in philanthropy. This peer and support network, managed and sponsored by Philanthropy Massachusetts, exists to:
- provide opportunities to learn from those within the field and
- offer professional development opportunities for members.
The Social Justice Funders’ Network (SJFN) of Massachusetts emerged in 2011 from the collective desire of progressive foundations and donors in Greater Boston and statewide to build relationships and advance learning among those in the philanthropic sector working to address the root causes of the injustices in our communities.
