Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

The Council on Foundations promotes responsible and effective philanthropy. Our mission requires a commitment to inclusiveness as a fundamental operating principle. It also calls for affirmations of diversity in its many forms, encompassing but not limited to:

  • ethnicity
  • race
  • gender and gender identity
  • sexual orientation
  • age
  • economic circumstance
  • class
  • disability
  • geography
  • philosophy

Diversity ensures that a range of perspectives, opinions, and experiences are recognized and acted upon in achieving the Council’s mission. We ask members to make a similar commitment to inclusiveness in order to be more effective and better enhance their abilities to contribute to our changing society.
