REP GRANTEE PARTNER, PEAK GRANTMAKING
BOREALIS CONVENING

Founded in 2018, the Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fund (REP) has invested over $34 million in philanthropy-serving organizations to inform, educate, and equip funders to integrate racial equity policies and practices into their grantmaking and programs. 

Given the level of political retrenchment since the global uprisings of 2020, the volatility of today’s sociopolitical landscape, and the impact of both on philanthropic giving, REP grantee partners are leading necessary work at levels that exceed the REP Fund’s original inception and capacity. For this reason, Borealis Philanthropy will sunset our REP Fund in 2025 to make room for greater growth, evolution, and equity in this space and sector—and in doing so, urge the philanthropic sector to deepen their commitment required to meet this moment: long-term, direct funding to support these organizations scaling and further shifting the philanthropic landscape in support of transformational racial justice movements.
