EPIP Webinar: The Power of Advocacy for LGBTQ Communities from All Levels of Philanthropy
3:00 pm ET
Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy
2015 was a year of major shifts in rights and awareness for LGBTQ communities. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriage. Trans issues receive an unprecedented awareness. Politicians made major commitments toward the end of AIDS. How did these legal, cultural and political actions translate to actual investment in the programs and organizations funding change for LGBTQ issues? Funders for LGBTQ Issues’ 2014 Tracking Report analyzes the trends, gaps, and opportunities related to LGBTQ grantmaking. Join Funders for LGBTQ Issues staff and young grantmakers with experience advocating internally at their organizations for increased LGBTQ funding for an important conversation. You will leave with a better understanding of the current state of LGBTQ philanthropy and tools to help your institution better support LGBTQ communities. Speakers:
- Naa Hammond, Research & Communications Associate, Funders for LGBTQ Issues
- Kristi Andrasik, Program Officer, The Cleveland Foundation
- Luis Vivaldi, Program Associate, Foundation for a Just Society
