Cosponsored by Economic Opportunity Funders, Grantmakers In Health; and Grantmakers for Children, Youth & Families
Assessing the new policy and funding environment that will be created after the 2012 elections will be critical as we build compelling and successful agendas for advancing our work. The Economic Opportunity Funders, Grantmakers for Children, Youth & Families (GCYF), and Grantmakers In Health (GIH), held Post-Election Philanthropy: Votes, Values, and Vision from December 17-18, 2012, in Washington, DC.
This timely briefing helped inform grantmakers about the outcomes of the national and state elections and what they suggest in terms of opportunities and challenges for the short and medium term. It also provided a forum for funders to identify strategies for individual and collective action. In addition, several concurrent roundtable discussions enabled grantmakers to delve more deeply into the impact of the election on specific issues. Roundtable sponsors included GIST, GCYF, GIH, Neighborhood Funders Group’s Working Group on Labor & Community Partnerships, Workforce Matters, and Asset Funders Network.
