New York City Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color Announces Participatory Review Committee Fall 2017 Recruitment

The New York City Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color is pleased to announce that it is launching recruitment for its Participatory Review Committee (PRC) for the upcoming Fall 2017 Cycle.

ABOUT THE NYC FUND FOR GIRLS AND YOUNG WOMEN OF COLOR:

The NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color is a collaboration of a diverse and growing group of funders coming together to expand philanthropic investment for girls and young women of color in NYC. The first of its kind in the United States, The Fund envisions a city that offers every opportunity for all girls and young women of color, inclusive of two-spirited, transgender and gender non-binary youth, to succeed economically and socially. It pools money to invest in non-profit efforts that promote the well-being and leadership of young women of color as change agents, and partners with communities and other allies to advance equity. It is managed by and housed at The New York Women’s Foundation.

OVERVIEW OF THE PARTICIPATORY REVIEW COMMITTEE:

The Participatory Review Committee (PRC) forms the heart of the Fund’s participatory grantmaking model. It educates and engages diverse community members as activist philanthropists to leverage the strengths of girls and young women of color toward cultural and systemic change. In teams of 3 – 4 members and in partnership with NYWF staff, the PRC assists The Fund in reading proposals, conducting site visits, and making grant recommendations. By drawing on a range of perspectives that are reflective of New York City’s diverse community of women and local community leaders, this participatory grantmaking model creates a more inclusive process responsive to the needs of low-income girls of color and the broader community.
