Nonprofit organizations have a critical role to play in reaching people who have barriers to vaccine access, as well as ensuring that everyone receives accurate vaccine information from trusted messengers.
Since the beginning of 2021, we’ve experienced a significant drop in participation in MPN Exchanges. Therefore, we’ve decided to cancel this Exchange and will continue to create spaces for member sharing and collaboration. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
So far this year we've heard from a number of public health experts and local leaders at the forefront of the COVID-19 vaccine efforts across the state as well as funders who have taken up advocacy efforts to support this huge undertaking during these bi-weekly calls. Join your Maryland Philanthropy Network colleagues for a chance to reflect on our recent COVID-19 programs, discuss actions you've taken, outstanding questions you may have, and to continue to process how philanthropy can best support communities in this particularly challenging time.
Please join the Health Funders for a dive into the problematic health disparities in COVID-19 cases among people of color and the social determinants that play into those disparities.

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.
