In Pursuit Of Our Mission Of Service To Humanity,...

Emory is a leader in understanding our past to better serve our communities today and work toward a just future. With a track record of scholarship on civil rights, a strong African American studies program, and working relationships with organizations that focus on social and racial justice, Emory is positioned for leadership on a wide range of issues around inequity, public health, and educational disparities.

Knowing that educational equity is key to a better future for all, Emory has set goals for working toward a student body, faculty, and staff that accurately reflect Atlanta’s social and racial diversity. In addition, Emory is acknowledging and atoning for past discrimination and racial injustices and working toward true equity and access—in admissions, scholarships, hiring, and the health care Emory provides in Atlanta and across Georgia.

Making a gift to any of the funds listed below will not count in the Racial and Social Justice tally above because it will count in the total for its associated program area (i.e. Emory Libraries, Emory Law, etc.).

For Emory Day of Giving, we are highlighting the following giving opportunities in support of racial and social justice.

Diversity and Inclusion Programming: The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) creates spaces for faculty, staff, and students to work and learn in inclusive, equitable, and diverse environments where they thrive and bring their whole selves to our campus community.

African American Collections Fund supports the acquisition of print materials and ephemera from African American history and culture along with related public programming.

Black Emory Impact Circle Fund advances the causes of Black communities through the power of collective philanthropic giving.

BSI Start:ME: Affiliated with the Goizueta's Business and Society Institute (BSI), the Start:ME program strengthens Atlanta’s underserved communities by empowering the entrepreneurs within them to start or grow small businesses. Your gift will provide resources to assist Atlanta micro-businesses, 84 percent of which are owned and operated by entrepreneurs of color.

Emory Public Interest Committee provides stipends for Emory Law students pursing unpaid summer volunteer positions or clerkships in public interest organizations.

Food Security allows consistent access to healthy meals through the office of Student Case Management & Interventions Services (SCMIS), purchases groceries to stock the Eagle Food Co-op pantry, orders grocery gift cards to support students in crisis, and provides campus meals to students over school breaks when regular dining is halted. 

Office of LGBT Life: By engaging the Emory community in creating an affirming and just campus environment, the Office of LGBT Life supports the development of students with all gender and sexual identities.

Office for Racial and Cultural Engagement (RACE): RACE empowers students to examine the construction of racial identities and create active learning communities that enhance opportunities for cultural engagement.

Women of Emory Impact Circle Fund advances the causes of women and girls through the power of collective philanthropic giving.
