The Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) "is a multiyear project intended to increase the amount and effectiveness of resources aimed at combating institutional and structural racism in communities through capacity building, education, and convening of grantmakers and grantseekers. PRE works to assist organized philanthropy to meet the overall community goals of racial equity.

"Since its inception in January 2003, PRE has directly engaged hundreds of foundation representatives (including program staff, management, board members and individual donors) in discussions of racial equity and, in particular, how they can advance the mission of achieving racial equity through their own philanthropic institutions. PRE has conducted local and/or regional events in the Northwest, West, Midwest, Northeast and Southeast, as well as a number of national events.

"PRE is a project of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to increase public awareness about the need for strong civil rights and social justice public policy. PRE gratefully acknowledges major multiyear support from the C.S. Mott Foundation, as well as generous project support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Annie E. Casey Foundation." [1]
