Why donate?

    Align with our mission and values

    The USC Dornsife Equity Research Institute (ERI) seeks to use data and analysis to contribute to a more powerful, well-resourced, intersectional, and intersectoral movement for equity.

    • Leading with optimism and vision
    • Providing support and respect
    • Being accurate and credible
    • Centering the community and racial equity in all our work

    Invest in community collaborations

    ERI believes that we should center the voices of socially, economically, racially, and environmentally marginalized communities in our work. Collaboration with community partners expands our perspective, makes for better research and policy recommendations, and co-creates effective power-building strategies.

    Connection Through Community-Centered Data and Dialogue

    ERI believes that focused, interdisciplinary exploration with rigor uncovers credible and actionable analysis that can result in new, more effective equity narratives that strengthens organizations, connects communities, and powers movements.
