Join the Community Investment Affinity Group to hear about the issues and implications of declining homeownership in Maryland and Baltimore, as well as efforts to blunt the pandemic’s impact on homeownership. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of what investments, connections, and elements are needed, where funder’s interests are, and possible roles for philanthropy.
The Prenatal to Five Affinity Group meets bi-monthly. This peer group is focused on learning together about the needs of pregnant women and families with children up to age 5 and how to best support them. Any Maryland Philanthropy Network member who would like to connect and learn about investing in and supporting Prenatal to Five spaces is welcome.
Independent Sector, in partnership with Edelman Data & Intelligence, released a third annual report of exclusive survey findings that explore the nuances of trust in American nonprofit, philanthropic organizations, and other institutions. The report also provides recommendations on how we can do better.
The philanthropic sector faced massive shifts over the past two years. The pandemic prompted some funders to increase payouts and loosen — or entirely lift — grant restrictions, while the racial reckoning forced many to confront the imminent need to shift power dynamics, increase internal diversity, and act with intention to support organizations led by and serving people of color.
