Presented by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees and the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy
Co-sponsored by Maine Philanthropy Center

Racial capitalism is one of the major factors that inflicts harm upon – and withholds power and resources from – people and communities who seek to stay, move freely, work, transform, and thrive. GCIR is focused on moving money and power to immigrant, refugee, and asylum seeker communities and movement groups. Understanding the proportion of philanthropic dollars that go to the immigrant justice movement is crucial to this advocacy. The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) has documented the state of philanthropic funding for immigrant and refugee communities, and offers crucial recommendations for grantmakers who hope to liberate philanthropic assets in support of these communities.

Join GCIR and NCRP to delve into these findings and recommendations, including the latest data on the state of funding for immigrant and refugee communities, the extent to which local funders invest in these communities compared to national donors, and how much grantmakers are giving in support of immigrant groups with intersectional identities (e.g. Black migrants, LGBTQ migrants).
