Funding Community Organizing: Can It Improve the Impact of Your Foundation’s Work?

What is “community organizing”? What role does it play in philanthropy? And why does it prompt anxiety for so many grantmakers? No matter where you are on the political spectrum or what your focus area/social issue is, this is a time to consider if it makes sense to support community organizing and elevate the voices of those most impacted.

Join us for a conversation with those already deeply engaged in this work. Our guests include Laura McCargar, president of the Perrin Family Foundation and a nonprofit that is on the front lines of community organizing.
