As 2017 begins, community groups are organizing in a changing environment — democracy and civil rights protections are eroding, white supremacist movements are growing in chapters and members, state suppression of organizing and social justice movements is likely to increase dramatically and hate violence is on the rise. In the coming years, there will be an even greater need for philanthropy to support frontline advocacy and organizing for justice. How can funders drive more resources to community-based social change organizations, beyond the traditional grantmaking model?

Set the stage for your program planning and grantmaking in 2017 with this webinar, which will explore how foundations can be more creative and flexible in supporting grassroots groups and leaders. You’ll learn from experienced grantmakers and organizers, including insight into internal processes for foundation staff and board.

Join NCRP and Neighborhood Funders Group for a conversation with Molly Schultz Hafid, Assistant Director of the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock (moderator); Shalini Eddens, Director of Programs at Urgent Action Fund; Día Bùi, Co-Director of the Washington Peace Center; and Thenmozhi Soundararajan, Executive Director of Equality Labs.
