Racial Equity 2030
Investing $90 million to fund bold solutions that will drive a more equitable future for children around the globe
For all children to thrive, families must be able to support themselves, and their communities must be equitable places of opportunity. Right now, too many communities around the world are not set up for all children and all families to succeed.
In 2020, we marked the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s 90th anniversary by launching the Racial Equity 2030 Global Challenge, awarding 90 million U.S. dollars to fuel innovative and actionable solutions to build a more racially equitable future.
The challenge received more than 1,400 applications from more than 72 countries. In 2021, the 10 finalists were selected, and each received a $1 million planning grant, as well as nine months of capacity-building support. In Oct. 2022, five awardees were named to receive a combined $80 million over the next eight years, concluding in 2030, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s 100th anniversary.
The transformational work of each of the five awardees reflects the complexity of achieving racial equity and the structural changes that are needed to sustain meaningful, long-term change. They’re each promoting access to economic opportunity, education, improved governance and justice, and social well-being.
We’re honored to work alongside each of the awardees and help them scale their bold ideas.
