Image for Kellogg Foundation Grants $24 Million to Combat Racism

Jul 11, 2017

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, through its Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) initiative, recently announced $24 million in grants to organizations that are committed to fighting racism. According to Nonprofit Quarterly (NPQ), TRHT “offers a framework that attempts to change the narrative about race by building relationships and finding ways to help victims of racially motivated actions to heal.”

The Kellogg Foundation notes that “a primary focus will be jettisoning the deeply held, and often unconscious beliefs that undergird racism – the main one being the belief in a hierarchy of human value. This belief, which has fueled racism and conscious and unconscious bias throughout American culture, is the perception of a person’s or group’s inferiority or superiority based on physical characteristics, race, ethnicity or place of origin.”

Beginning in 2016, the TRHT initiative has worked with communities across the country to develop frameworks for addressing racial injustice in five separate areas:

  • Narrative Change
  • Racial Healing and Relationship Building
  • Separation
  • Law
  • Economy

The grants, which will be distributed to 14 places and organizations, will support the centralized coordination of the TRHT process in communities across the country.
