Join Maryland Philanthropy Network and EITC Funders Network for an important conversation to explore how foundations can be a part of advocacy efforts to ensure changes caused by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to the federal Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Earned Income Tax Credit provide increased and long-lasting economic security for families.
Join Maryland Philanthropy Network for the first of a three-part series on community schools. To start our series, Dr. Mavis Sanders, Senior Research Scholar of Black Children and Families at Child Trends, a national think tank, will share research perspectives related to implementation and accountability of K-12, full-service community schools. We will also hear from Ellie Mitchell, Executive Director of the Maryland Out of School Time Network, who will share state policy perspectives and a systems overview of community schools.
On August 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti. Hundreds have been deeply affected and thousands are injured while others will be left homeless or jobless. It can be tricky to determine how to sift through the information to prioritize philanthropic action. Our colleagues at Hispanics in Philanthropy and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy have both compiled lists of trusted resources to help philanthropy bring attention and aid to affected communities. We encourage you to review these resources and share your generosity by making donations to affected residents of the island.
In the wake of the U.S. withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the collapse of the Afghan government, and the Taliban’s takeover, many Afghans are fleeing for their lives. While up-to-date figures are unavailable due to the intense conflict, more than 1 million Afghans remain displaced from their homes due to ongoing violence and frequent natural disasters. We are grateful for our colleagues at Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) who have compiled a list of actions to support philanthropic response. Maryland Philanthropy Network will continue to post ways in which philanthropy may respond to all that is happening in the world and we urge foundations and individual philanthropists to look into the future of how all of this will change Maryland and what your role may be to relieve suffering and build for our future.
