Racial Equity Matters changes nonprofits’ grantmaking

Meghan Cummings

Vice President, Civic Advancement, Greater Cincinnati Foundation
Former Executive Director of The Women’s Fund

After attending a Racial Equity Matters session, Meghan Cummings began to question why her primary and secondary schools never taught her about the history of systemic racism. Racial Equity Matter was lifechanging for her. Meghan applied her learnings by placing an equity lens on The Women’s Fund’s grantmaking initiatives to ensure Black women and their families were supported.


Greater Cincinnati Foundation is on a mission to build a community where everyone thrives. By providing a space for honest conversations about the root causes of systemic racism and identifying ways to address them, we are becoming stronger together. Over the past three years, nearly 2,500 local participants have attended a Racial Equity Matters session and eight out of ten attendees credit the training with giving them a stronger set of tools to analyze the ways systemic racism affects their life and their work.
