Grantmakers Only

The election of Donald Trump poses unprecedented challenges for all those funding LGBTQ rights and other social justice issues. The new administration is wasting no time taking action on promises made during a divisive campaign that threaten the safety and livelihoods of many in our communities. As we brace for upcoming action on immigration, healthcare, civil rights issues, and more, it is more critical than ever that grantmakers committed to civil rights and social justice join together in conversation and collaboration.

Northern California Grantmakers, Funders for LGBTQ IssuesBay Area Justice Funders, and California Criminal Justice Funders invite funders to participate in a briefing on the state of LGBTQ funding. Speakers will share updates from the movement, explore national funding trends, and dive into local funding landscapes while considering how funders can respond to attacks on LGBTQ rights. The briefing will touch on issues most pressing in the face of this new administration, including criminalization, immigration, and religious exemptions.

Speakers: Roger Doughty, President of the Horizons Foundation, Surina Khan, CEO of the Women's Foundation of California, Kristina Wertz, Funders for LGBTQ Issues, and Ginna Brelsford, Co-Executive Director of GSA Network.

Sponsored by Northern California Grantmakers, Funders for LGBTQ Issues, Bay Area Justice Funders, and California Criminal Justice Funders
