D5 A fabulous resource for diversity in fund development http://www.d5coalition.org

In their own words, this is what D5 is about.

‘D5 is a five-year coalition to grow philanthropy’s diversity, equity, and inclusion. In 2010, foundations and philanthropy organizations came together to form an unprecedented coalition of 18 infrastructure organizations and set a strategic agenda to help philanthropy become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. The world is changing. We believe philanthropy should change with it. The ultimate goal of this work is to help foundations achieve greater impact in an increasingly diverse landscape.’
