The New Philanthropists is a pioneering organization that works to create more racially diverse and inclusive nonprofit boards in Austin. Our mission is to build a pipeline to leadership for people of color, cultivate diversity, equity and inclusion among mainstream nonprofit boards, and enable nonprofits to be more effective stewards of public trust and produce better outcomes for the people they serve.
What We Do
There's a lot of work to do and we're just getting started! It all begins with cultivating relationships within Latinx, Black, and Asian communities and serving as a matching source for nonprofit boards and board prospects within those communities. However, matchmaking for us goes way beyond a checkbox. At TNP, we understand that in order to make our impact sustainable we must work from the inside out to educate, empower, and uphold responsible nonprofits and leaders of color on the importance of diversity and the benefits that result from it. For this reason, we provide programming for both audiences in order to change the culture of nonprofit boards and build a better board around diversity, equity and inclusion.
