Janay Richmond is the Director of Marketing and Membership for the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP), and Ryan Schlegel is the Director of Research for NCRP. The NCRP “promotes philanthropy that serves the public good, is responsive to people and communities with the least wealth and opportunity, and is held accountable to the highest standards of integrity and openness.”
Janay and Ryan are among the co-authors of the report Black Funding Denied, which analyzes pubic data about community foundation giving specifically directed to Black communities. The report uses data from Candid to demonstrate an “ever-persistent resource gap” in funds designated for Black communities. Janay and Ryan discuss the origins of the report, transparency in philanthropic reporting, and much more. Additional information is available from other partners, including The Association of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE), Pocket Change, and more.
