The purpose of this paper is to share the experiences from five communities as they have begun to address racial inequities and to show how philanthropy can encourage and support community members and leaders in this process. It explores key elements of effective programs, the infrastructure needed at a national level and the role of philanthropy, both national and local foundations, in supporting this work. The five communities studied are Jacksonville, Fla., Long Island, N.Y., Riverside County, Fla., Seattle, Wash. and Sonoma County, Calif.
