GCIR Reports explore current concerns, challenges, and trends on a broad range of topics. Past issue reports have tackled immigrant and refugee relations, immigrant labor, immigrant civic participation, language, and the impact of Katrina on immigrants in the Gulf Coast.
The GCIR Toolkit, Investing in Our Communities: Strategies for Immigrant Integration, published in 2006, is an easy-to-understand guide that describes how grantmakers at all levels can play an important leadership role on this issue. This toolkit for grantmakers draws on extensive research and interviews with hundreds of foundation, community, business, and government leaders. It incorporates academic research as well as policy and community-based concerns into a resource that also can inform the work of practitioners in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors.
