The State of Social Justice Philanthropy finds that giving to empower underserved groups increased from 12 percent of grant dollars in 2004-2006 to 15 percent in 2008-2010. NCRP also notes that social justice philanthropy gives grantmakers maximum impact and leverage. Recent studies show that for every dollar invested in policy and civic engagement, there is a return of $115 in community benefit.
