Maryland Philanthropy Network invites you to continue the conversation we started at our 2020 Annual Meeting | Reimagine Philanthropy through a series of events designed as opportunities for transformative change. This next conversation in our Reimagine Philanthropy series will explore the topic of Economic Justice and the Social Determinant of Health, Work, and Wellbeing. Through the lens of trust-based philanthropy, our speakers will share the stories of how they have grapple with the need for transformative philanthropic practices that include partnerships with communities to address root causes of disparate health and employment outcomes.
Maryland Philanthropy Network invites the staff and board members of nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations and social enterprises to our recurring program on foundations and the broader landscape of philanthropy in Maryland. This learning opportunity is most appropriate to new grantseekers and to nonprofit organizations in Baltimore and central Maryland.
It could not be clearer in those moments how firmly engrained white supremacy is in all the structures of our nation. The response from law enforcement at the Capitol was unrecognizable from the over-policing that occurs in many of the communities we serve and represent. The upswell of white supremacists came from across our country and from nearly every community. We at Maryland Philanthropy Network stand with our colleagues and leaders across the country in calling for change. Our communities and our future depend on it.
The global reach of Covid and its staying power both as a killer disease and an economic menace attracted a philanthropic response of $20.2 billion last year, more than double the amount given to the previous top 10 disasters combined, according to preliminary estimates released Wednesday. For many nonprofit leaders, however, the true measure of philanthropy’s response to both the pandemic and the racial-justice uprisings that followed the killing of George Floyd in May will be in whether foundations and other donors continue the less restrictive approaches to grant making they adopted during the pandemic’s early weeks.
