Three Years Later, Funding Social Movements Matters More Than Ever (Two-Part Series) 

Tuesday, May 9, 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST
Tuesday, June 13, 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST 

Cosponsored by Philanthropy New York, Connecticut Council for Philanthropy, Economic Opportunity Funders, Forefront, Funders for Justice, Funders for Reproductive Equity, Grantmakers Council of Rhode Island, Grantmakers of Western Pennsylvania, and Maine Philanthropy Center. 

During the 2020 uprisings against anti-Black racism and amidst a global pandemic, every sector in the United States, including philanthropy, condemned systemic injustice and committed to implementing more equitable policies and practices within their institutions. Three years later, it remains vital for foundations to support social change movements, from emergence to infrastructure to sustainability. Join us for a two-part virtual, interactive series to explore social movements, the needs of movement leaders, and promising practices from funders. Speakers include Jennifer Ching of North Star Fund (May 9 session), Molly Schultz Hafid of Butler Family Fund (June 13 session), Frances Kunreuther of Building Movement Project, and Deepa Iyer (Moderator) of Building Movement Project.

In partnership with the Building Movement Project, we will dig deep into their latest reports and toolkits (Move the Money and Funding Movement Infrastructure) for peer-to-peer reflection and hands-on practice.
