A letter from Unbound Philanthropy to its grantees about the COVID-19 outbreak.
In a recent piece on the declining fortunes of the Council on Foundations, we looked at how the philanthropy sector has changed as it's grown.
Over the last few years, we has seen several cultural moments, such as #MeToo and the response to police violence, take place that have raised social justice struggles to the national platform. In this discussion, FCCP will explore how grassroots leaders have taken these moments, or helped create these moments, to build long-term power in their communities and hear how funders have been supporting this work.
A number of funders—both legacy heavy hitters and smaller foundations—are engaged in the Central American region, focused on alleviating some of these root causes of migration.
Donors need to act now to ensure nonprofits can not only help us through the crisis but also be in a position to rebuild our communities in the future.
2020 has been a year unlike any other in our lifetimes. The fourth consecutive year of escalating policy attacks on immigrants and many other marginalized communities.
