Investments in COVID-19 Recovery and Public Health

Organized by: Philanthropy California

Public health infrastructure underpins many important priorities — such as keeping the economy open and children in classrooms. California’s COVID-19 response confirmed that our health systems were ill-prepared for such a crisis, and public health officials know another crisis is not a matter of if, but when. Congress responded quickly to fund the initial pandemic response; however, long-term sustained funding is needed to create the public health infrastructure needed to protect against a number of growing threats. Join us for…

Pacific Islanders Leading for an Equitable Recovery

COVID-19 made starkly visible the disparities in our society. Nowhere was this more clear than for the Pacific Islander (PI) community in California. The data that is available shows that this community was perhaps the hardest hit by COVID-19 of any other racial or ethnic group. Philanthropy and policymakers are engaged in discussions about what an equitable recovery looks like, which is commendable. But for Pacific Islanders, the data and research that exists to track their recovery is woefully inadequate.…

Hidden Gems: Funding Long-Term Recovery Groups

Organized by: Center for Disaster Philanthropy

It is often said, “Disasters begin and end locally.” After the major news media, national nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and large funders go home, it is the local community that will be coordinating the years of recovery still to come. One tool used for this work is the often ignored but desperately needed long-term recovery group (LTRG). Typically pulling from the local Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters membership, LTRGs usually describe themselves as a “recovery coalition,” “unmet needs committee” or “community…

Advocacy 101

Much of our time is spent fine-tuning effective grantmaking and investment practices, but how many of us look at the policies that creates a need for grantmaking? This session will explore a powerful tool that is available to you and your grantees/investees: advocacy. While funding can address impacts that have already occurred, changes in public policy yield a new environment that creates opportunity and prevents disproportionate outcomes in people's lives. Simply put, advocacy leverages the impact of available funds so…
