This is a meeting of the Binational Migration Funders, a collaboration facilitated by Catalyst of San Diego & Imperial Counties.

Nonprofits are rising to meet the needs of the hundreds of migrants who arrive daily seeking asylum in the United States. Since mid-September, 20,000 individuals have been left on the streets with no support. Still, thanks to a coalition of community organizations, they found shelter, safety, and assistance to reach their final destination. The County approved $3 million in October to support future activities. Join us to learn more about how the county’s funds will be used and what more philanthropy is and can be doing.

The Binational Resilience Initiative, a partnership between the International Community Foundation and San Diego Foundation recently awarded more than $1 million in grants to U.S.- and Mexico-based nonprofit organizations to preserve, study, and strengthen the resiliency of the Cali-Baja coastline. Attendees will learn more about a recent trip to Imperial Beach and Tijuana to meet with grantees and see the impact firsthand.

These meetings are open to all staff, trustees, and donors of Catalyst member organizations and eligible guests who are interested in binational migration issues. We respectfully request that attendees refrain from engaging in fundraising and other development activities at all Catalyst events.

The Binational Migration Funders Collaborative seeks to ensure the legal and wellness needs of all immigrants and refugees who pass from Mexico through San Diego and Imperial Counties are met, and advocates for sustainable permanent immigration infrastructure to meet those needs in the future.

The vision of the Binational Migration Funders Collaborative acknowledges the need for a rapid-response as well as a longer-term, movement building strategy. The Binational Migration Funders Collaborative is a member of Delivering on the Dream (DOTD), a national network convened by Grantmakers Concerned With Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) of state and local funding collaboratives investing needed resources to protect and defend the rights of immigrants and refugees. DOTD is composed of 27 collaborative groups throughout the nation and serves as a broader learning community for Catalyst Migration Funders to learn with.
