Inclusive Philanthropy

Partnering to make real change

Led by founder and CEO Tesha McCord Poe, Joy-Raising partners with organizations to address their most critical fundraising and diversity/equity and inclusion (DEI) needs. Whether it's helping to launch a capital campaign or confronting unexamined bias in hiring practices, we know how to work with you to move forward and bring change.


We are unafraid to engage in the most challenging discussions about philanthropy, money, race, class, and community in order to help your organization accomplish its best.
