This program is a part of our Climate Change Series.
No matter our politics, one thing is clear these days. We’re all feeling called to take a stand for what we believe in.
Join us for Mobilizing for Mission - a new program model designed to help philanthropy organizations keep up with the pace of change coming out of Washington, DC and contemplate action on the issues they care about.
Mobilizing for Mission will convene funders to confidentially share what they’re doing and explore opportunities to collaborate.
This pilot Mobilizing for Mission session will focus on mobilizing the grassroots on climate change.
- Funders designing innovative strategies to support community-based action on climate change
- Legal boundaries and issues surrounding funding advocacy work
We’ll create space for you to brainstorm what action makes sense for your foundation and how you might partner with others. Are you ready to make a move?
