We love connecting members with Maggie, our new president and CEO, during these coffee sessions and we think you do too! As a result, we are continuing these on a monthly basis through the end of the year. Grab your favorite morning beverage and join Maggie for a chance to build relationship and share your thoughts about Maryland Philanthropy Network in this small group space.
Please join us for the Maryland Community Foundations Association Quarterly Meeting to connect with peers and share best practices. We will be joined by Kevin van Bronkhorst, Director, National Standards at the Council on Foundations to gain clarity around the current dues for National Standards as well as hear any updates about the program.
Findings from a new survey conducted by the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) show that U.S. nonprofits faced major challenges but fared better than expected in 2020, thanks to an infusion of philanthropic and government funding. However, the data reveal concerning disparities in the experiences of women leading nonprofits and of nonprofits serving certain communities of color.
The Declaration of Independence, written 245 years ago, inspired a revolution that helped birth a nation. The power of the Declaration’s “self-evident” truths also inspired global movements for human rights and democracy that remain powerful today, by declaring that all “are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” As we emerge from a tumultuous year—of pandemic, racial strife, and party polarization—it is worth returning to these fundamental truths, and to reflect on how they might help us heal and rebuild our incredibly diverse nation. This 4th of July weekend, a group of funders, thinkers, creators, and community leaders are launching the New Declaration campaign, which invites every community to join in reflection and creative expression. Our goal is to strengthen the foundations of our nation in advance of the Declaration’s 250th anniversary in 2026.
