Greenlining Report on Foundation Board Diversity

As promised yesterday, the Greenlining report on diversity of foundation boards is now available.  here are the key findings from the report:

  • One out of four board members of 46 largest foundations in the United States are people of color, including: 8.0 % who are Latino; 12.5% who are African American and 4.5% who are Asian American
  • 28.3% of the top 46 foundations have no people of color on their boards at all, including: 56.5% have no Latinos; 37.8% have no African Americans; and 69.6% have no Asian Americans
  • Foundations with diverse boards are also overwhelmingly the most diverse in their grantmaking; 47.1% of all grants to people of color-led organizations in 2005 were made by the foundations with the top 10 most diverse boards

I am looking for an example of a nonprofit foundation giving a "grant" to another nonprofit foundation to award to a researcher.

In the past, this researcher has received an annual stipend from a
donor advised fund, which has been channeled and administered through the nonprofit foundation. (They take 10% as an administrative fee.)

Now, the researcher has been approved by a private foundation to receive a stipend, but, he is not a nonprofit or working under a nonprofit.

How can the researcher receive the monies, and everyone preserve their nonprofit tax status?

Thank you for your assistance.
