California Dignity for Families Fund: Learning Series

Organized by: Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees

Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) is hosting a monthly roundtable discussion centering invisibilized communities and often neglected topics within the migrant justice movement.

Family Philanthropy Conference: Navigating Transitions, Redefining Traditions

Organized by: SoCal Grantmakers

And, more than ever, philanthropy is urged to think differently about its practices in favor of grantmaking that…
