We are excited to share the publication of our first position paper entitled:
Strengthening Black Families:
A Case for Philanthropic Investment
This position paper provides a rationale for the POISE Foundation’s shift to a family-centered approach. It introduces POISE’s new Strengthening Black Families (SBF) program strategy as a promising case example. It also considers how other funders might employ such a lens in their work–and make investments toward similar goals.
It is POISE’s hope that this paper will create the impetus for a new dialogue–and a new direction–within the philanthropic community. We encourage funders to see how investments in strengthening families can address the most critical issues facing America–and, in particular, its Black communities.
