Diversity and Inclusion
Our Commitment to DEIAJ
Raise the Bar Consulting supports the best of the nonprofit sector and of philanthropy. We have seen firsthand how nonprofit organizations community groups, schools, government entities, and coalitions can activate movements and work for justice as they passionately pursue their missions.
In order to live our values and help our partners meet their missions, we feel it’s important to acknowledge that philanthropy, much of which is rooted in white privilege, has perpetuated inequity. Power dynamics in philanthropy—between donors, funders, nonprofits, and the communities they serve—can at times contribute to many of the problems we aim to solve.
Raise the Bar is committed to anti-racism and to understanding our responsibility to advance greater equity. We pledge to approach our work with openness and a growth mindset, always striving for the most just, equitable, accessible, and inclusive of outcomes.
