The needs of Black girls and women have long been ignored by the philanthropy world. In 2017, less than 1 percent of the $67 billion foundation contributions went to organizations focused on women and girls of color. That’s according to a report from the Ms. Foundation for Women. Just $15 million went to groups benefiting Black girls and women. 

Dr. Monique W. Morris, president and CEO of Grantmakers for Girls of Color, joined The Takeaway to discuss how Grantmakers for Girls of Color recognizes and uplifts the wisdom of the youth they serve.
