Strategic Advisory Group: Creating Equity in the Nonprofit Space

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT


There has been an explosion of grassroots fundraising and activism over the last few years as communities rise to meet the growing challenges and rapid changes in our country.  But newer nonprofit organizations, especially those started and run by people of color, often run into roadblocks as they grow, clashing with older, more established support systems as they try to expand their charitable efforts.

Council member Mike Keo, founder of Make Us Visible is focused on tackling this very issue. Mike’s organization has made huge strides in passing bills to ensure the inclusion of AAPI history in school curricula. But as Make Us Visible expands to more states, challenges from best practices around governance to logistical issues such as registering as a nonprofit have arisen.

At this Strategic Advisory Session, we will use Mike’s work as a case study on how we might advise and advance early-stage nonprofits creating a roadmap to successful expansion for other organizations like his.

This event is for Council members, especially those with experience running nonprofits and an interest in supporting BIPOC community organizers.


1. Co-create  guidance on serving fast-growing but not yet registered non-profits in ways that are equitable and creative

2. Understand the challenges of a unique organization that is staying true to its mission of being created by a community, for a community

3. Dive deeper and understand the challenges that BIPOC founders face when fundraising
