Harnessing the Power of Data for Transformative Community Change
Inclusive Data is not just a name—it’s our ethos. We are the bridge that connects data-driven insights with community-centric solutions. Being a “by, for, with” organization, we mirror the communities we ardently serve, notably emphasizing the distinctive cultural and capacity expertise that is deeply embedded within Black communities. Our reach stretches from our home base in Seattle to communities across the United States, ensuring that economic and business development is not just a goal but a tangible reality through our pioneering solutions and partnerships. We proudly stand as advocates for underfunded communities, ardently ensuring they have the resources and platforms to shine brilliantly.

Our approach

Our Mission

Empowering Communities with Data, Digital Equity, and Economic Drive
Digital equity, digital justice, and community reinvestment aren’t just buzzwords for us—they are pillars that underpin everything we undertake. We are relentless in our pursuit to amplify underfunded communities, pushing boundaries to ensure they have the resources they genuinely merit. With strategies spanning research, outreach, technical assistance, capacity building, and fund development, we aim to shape narratives, fostering an ecosystem where every community narrative is amplified, and potential transforms into palpable progress.

Our Vision

A World Connected, Celebrated, and Elevated by Its Diversity
In our envisioned world, every community, irrespective of its economic status or background, experiences the power of limitless digital opportunities and is celebrated for its unique stories and strengths. Digital equity, community reinvestment, and the principles of digital justice guide us toward this horizon—a world where these principles are everyday realities. It’s a vision we strive for, one where every community’s success is a testament to collective growth and shared prosperity.

Meet The Founder

I’m Dr. Shaun Glaze, your favorite Grant Slayer, a researcher, grant strategist and Founder of Inclusive Data.

In 2020, we all saw the uprisings in defense of Black lives. We saw how funders were eager to reach Black folks – and that no one really seemed to be helping Black folks learn how to get these HUGE opportunities.

I didn’t want to start a business as much as I wanted to support the movement for Black liberation and get as many Black folks as much money as I could.

Honestly, I just want us to get free, y’all.

I need to get as much of what I knew out there ASAP. I’m pushing everything I know into as many Black homes as I can.

So, I made the ultimate playbook while using my over 10 years of grants experience to get more than $3M per month – that’s just counting the funding for Black folks y’all. Not even all the funding we’ve secured for community.

Funding rules have changed, and now tiny small businesses and new nonprofits are winning BIG! I know this won’t last long, so I need community to really mobilize so we can all eat.
