Funding Like You Want to Win: Philanthropy & Movement Investments  

March 14, 2024 2:00 pm Eastern Time 

Cosponsored with Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy, Catalyst, Funders Together to End Homelessness, Northern California Grantmakers, Philanthropy New York, Southern California Grantmakers, and Hispanics in Philanthropy. 

Every historical movement, from civil rights to marriage equality has required sustained effort over time, including developing campaign frameworks, deploying organizers, conducting research and message testing, and navigating legislative and judicial systems. Philanthropy is uniquely positioned to underwrite these capacities and ensure that movements have the resources needed to weather the mobilization of a well-funded opposition. Entrenched, complex societal problems like homelessness, economic inequality, xenophobia, and racism will not be solved overnight. The adage “fund us like you want us to win” is one that funders should take to heart as they pursue agendas to improve community well-being. In this conversation, we’ll hear from leaders at the forefront of efforts to build a more inclusive, healthier, safer, and more prosperous multi-racial democracy, as well as learn from foundations that have embraced movement-centered strategies. Speakers include Jenn Ching of the North Star Fund, Tram Nguyen of the New Virginia Majority, Margarita Luna of The California Endowment, and Roksana Mun of Grassroots Asians Rising.
