Founded in 1990, GCIR provides resources that foundations need to address the challenges facing newcomers and their host communities and to strengthen society as a whole. Its mission is to influence the philanthropic field to advance the contributions and address the needs of the country's growing and increasingly diverse immigrant and refugee populations.
GCIR members have elected two new board members, adding expertise on the U.S. South and children and families.
The two newly elected directors are Stephanie Kripa Cooper-Lewter, senior research director for the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina, and Irene Lee, director of the Family Economic Success unit at the Annie E. Casey Foundation. For more information, see our press release.
