RESEARCH & RESOURCES TO INCREASE
SUPPORT FOR GIRLS OF COLOR

ABOUT THE REPORT

Start from the Ground Up: Increasing Support for Girls of Color, a research project of Grantmakers for Girls of Color, opens a window into opportunities for philanthropy to be more equitable and accountable to girls of color and shines a light on how critical the reality of underfunding is for organizations led by and for girls of color.

We hope these new tools will facilitate important conversations within philanthropy, bolster the work of leaders in the Grantmakers for Girls of Color network, and catalyze an increase in resources to organizations and leaders focused on girls of color.

In their own words

Here are the voices of girls sharing their experiences and guidance for philanthropy. When we listen to girls and invest in their needs as well as their dreams, they become the strong, powerful women of color leaders we need.

The researchers of Start From the Ground Up held Town Hall discussions with young women across the United States. These audio murals incorporate the words of young women who participated in those discussions. Experience them to complement your reading of the Research Report, or use them as part of some of the activities in the Start from the Ground Up toolkit.
