WHAT WE DO

The Executives’ Alliance for Boys and Men of Color provides crucial and unparalleled opportunities for our philanthropic members to explore, identify, collaborate, and support actions that will be most effective in removing systemic and cultural barriers to the safety, wellness, and success of boys and men of color.

Our Strategic Goals

Our mission is driven through the pursuit of four strategic goals:

INCREASE PHILANTHROPIC INVESTMENTS IN BOYS AND MEN OF COLOR

We provide information, connections, and opportunities to help funders make deeper, sustained investments in the success of boys and men of color.

DEVELOP STRATEGIC COLLABORATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES AMONG PHILANTHROPIC INSTITUTIONS

We foster peer connections and shared learning to lower the transaction cost of philanthropic collaboration. By engaging experts, field leaders, community stakeholders, and policymakers we help to better align the work of funders and the BMOC field.

ELEVATE THE PUBLIC VOICE OF FOUNDATION EXECUTIVES AS FIELD LEADERS

We leverage the power of our foundation CEO network, providing a platform for executive leaders to use their fiscal assets and reputational capital to support the BMOC movement.

INCREASE PUBLIC WILL AND POLICY ATTENTION TO BOYS AND MEN OF COLOR

We help funders and the BMOC field promote asset-based narratives that have the power to change beliefs about boys and men of color and move decision makers toward actions that eliminate structural barriers to their success.

Explore our Work

We advance these goals through three primary mechanisms:

Collective Action Tables

Funder workgroups providing our members opportunities for shared learning and a platform for strategic collaboration.

Convening to connect philanthropy to the field of nonprofit organizations working on the frontlines.
