Member Update: Connect & Strategize with Funders, Peers & NCRP this Summer!

Good morning everyone,

It’s almost summer and we thought we’d share what’s on the horizon for NCRP membership over the next few months! Here’s what we have planned:

  • 3 conversations with leaders from national grantmakers (Speakers to be announced soon)

  • NCRP’s President & CEO sharing insights into the funder response to COVID and where things need to go next

  • The launch of two new movements for our Movement Investment Project with strategy meetings (Worker Justice and Reproductive Access and Gendered Violence) and continued discussions for those in the Pro-Immigrant and Refugee Movement following our latest launch

  • And if you’re available at the end of this month, you’re invited to join us, Rep. Pramila Jayapal and leadership from Marguerite Casey, Colorado Health and the Ford Foundations to discuss long-term funder strategy to empower communities beyond this current moment.  (This event is open to non-members too and is included at the bottom of this email – feel free to share with your network.)

The full list of events is below. Register you or your staff for any you’re interested in. We hope to see you in attendance this June to August 2020!

June 4th 1pm EST Power Up Huddle We believe that informed nonprofits are empowered nonprofits. The Power Up Huddle is a quarterly meeting space for nonprofits to get informed about the sector more broadly.  Each meeting, members can expect an insider assessment of the biggest news impacting the philanthropic sector, a chance to ask pressing questions regarding the topic at hand and an opportunity to troubleshoot anything on your plate that you want to bring to the full wisdom of the group. This month’s topic: an assessment of the funder response to COVID so far and where things should go next featuring Aaron Dorfman, NCRP’s President and CEO. Register here

June 11th 1pm EST Pro-Immigrant and Refugee Huddle  The Movement Investment Project launched in April of 2019 with a look at the national philanthropic landscape as it relates to pro-immigrant and refugee funding.  In May 2020, we launched an interactive dashboard that provides a look at local foundation giving for immigrants, refugees and the pro-immigrant, pro-refugee movement. Join this quarterly meeting to learn the latest about what’s happening behind the scenes of this effort and ways your organization can benefit and plug-in.  Register here.

June 2020 - TBD - Worker Justice Strategy Huddle  In 2019, we launched the Movement Investment Project, a targeted approach to move the sector concerning specific movement areas. We kicked it off with a closer look at the pro-immigrant and refugee movement. Now, we’re in the beginning stages of putting together a new effort to help transform how philanthropy relates to worker justice. If your organization has this focus, you’re invited to join this meeting to learn about progress in our conversations with funders and how this effort is beginning to take shape.

*BONUS* May 27th 12pm EST NCRP Panel Discussion w/ Rep. Pramila Jayapal and leadership from Marguerite Casey Foundation, Colorado Health Foundation and Ford Foundation  The current coronavirus pandemic is hitting workers and immigrants disproportionally hard. Black, Indigenous and People of color are facing the brunt of this crisis. Yet, the crisis also presents opportunities to help change the conditions and policies that have made this pandemic disproportionately worse for communities of color. Join us for an important funder strategy conversation on how to not just provide immediate relief, but also long-term support that empowers communities beyond the current moment. Register here
