We hope this newsletter finds you with renewed spirits after CHANGE Philanthropy’s incredible Unity Summit and turning our clocks back an hour. Missed the summit? Luckily, the recordings are now available! Catch up on the action here.
November is Native American Heritage Month, and our partner, Native Americans in Philanthropy, is hosting a number of events this month, including Indian 101. Foundations, grantmakers, and other funders are invited to join and unpack the vital connection between philanthropy and American Indian/Native American relations. Each of the sessions is an interactive experience that covers the past, present, and future of Indigenous peoples’ shared values as well as the diversity of cultures.
We also congratulate our partner ABFE for leading the philanthropic sector around racial equity for the last 50 years. ABFE is the first, the original, the groundbreaking philanthropic serving organization and is hosting a celebratory event tonight! Join ABFE for their James A. Joseph Awards Ceremony and ABFE's 50th Anniversary Celebration.
