Following the Rising to the Occasion briefing, funders are invited to join in a more in-depth discussion, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m, about what local funders are already doing and considering to support marginalized communities given the new landscape. This will also be a great opportunity to begin exploring ideas about how we can marshal our collective capacities to protect vulnerable populations, including:
Do the nonprofits you support have what they need to thrive and produce results? The nonprofit sector has consistently struggled with retaining strong staff, fundraising effectively and achieving long-term sustainability. Now, more than ever, funders need to ensure that nonprofits are strong enough to provide sustainable support to our most vulnerable communities.
Join us for a Funders' Committee for Civic Participation and Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers' co-hosted discussion with funders, and staff with organizations serving funders, about why philanthropy should care about the census and how the success or failure of this important civic project will impact grantmaking and the communities that continue to be at risk. We will explore philanthropy’s role in ensuring a fair and accurate census and points of entry and engagement at local and national levels.
Due to an overwhelming response, we have moved this program to The Boston Foundation (75 Arlington St, 10th Floor, Boston, MA 02116) to accommodate the number of attendees expected.
Funders' Briefing 1:30pm - 3:00pm
