Abortion as Healthcare RoadMap: Why I Fund the Frontlines - National Committee For Responsive Philanthropy

#TBT: Libra Foundation Executive Director and NCRP Board Member Crystal Hayling's letter urging funders to support independent clinics and local funds is just as urgent now as when it was first published. "It’s time for action, not more empty political debates. Grantmakers concerned with women’s issues must understand that policy doesn’t mean much without practitioners."

Black Migrant Justice Groups Deserve More than a Drop in the Bucket - National Committee For Responsive Philanthropy

NEW: As NCRP prepares to share updated analysis on funding of the pro-immigrant and pro-refugee movement, we begin with an especially underfunded group of organizations - Black migrant-led groups.

These groups are doing intersectional, powerful work with only a fraction of a penny of the philanthropic sector's dollar. Philanthropy must do better.

A new NCRP analysis details how philanthropy's continued under resourcing of immigrant and refugee communities is even worse for Black migrant groups.

Honoring Mothers – in deeds, not just flowers – is a year-round effort - National Committee For Responsive Philanthropy

Celebrating all of the mothers should also mean addressing all aspects of their care, including the health disparities Black women face during and after pregnancy.

Yet philanthropic funding for maternal health has not kept pace with the number of pregnancy-related deaths among Black women.

Maybe a better celebration of Mother's Day would be public policy that directly serves the economic and social needs of caregivers?

Bremer Trust Decision a Step Forward in Accountability - National Committee For Responsive Philanthropy

Late last Friday, after seven years of local advocacy, Judge Awsumb ousted Brian Lipschultz, who had made himself trustee and co-CEO, from the helm of Otto Bremer Trust. This is an important first step to restore a sense of accountability, but it still leaves many questions. Read NCRP's response here:

Judge Awsumb's decision to force Brian Lipschultz from his position as an Otto Bremer Trustee is a step forward, but it is not a total victory for good governance advocates. Nevertheless, NCRP applauds the leadership of Minnesota State Attorney General Keith Ellison for not just investigating the ma...

Trans and Sex Worker Justice Needs Steady Allyship - National Committee For Responsive Philanthropy

"Committing to unrestricted funding gives trans–led and sex worker-led organizations the means to help re-shape the conversation around the continued criminalization of sex work and behavioral health issues.

Funding that is not project specific gives programs like ours the latitude be responsive to meet the immediate direct needs of trans women in their communities while also advocating for systemic change." — Maddalynn Sesepasara

TOMORROW: Join NCRP's President & CEO, Aaron Dorfman as he moderates, "Funding BIPOC communities through intermediaries – the good, the bad and the ugly” at Stanford Social Innovation Review's Frontiers of Social Innovation.

In the last few years, there has been an explosion of interest from donors and foundations in funding intermediary organizations that prioritize giving to social change nonprofits led by and accountable to Black, Indigenous, and other people of color.

In this session, Dorfman will explore the forces driving this trend and dig into the benefits – and the potential disadvantages – of funding through intermediaries and share structural ways to ensure that communities will truly benefit from funding, and to mitigate the potential disadvantages.

With violence, stigma and criminalization continuing to surround sex work, it's time for philanthropy to protect and invest in these communities.

NCRP's March 2022 issue of Responsive Philanthropy highlights some of the many frontline sex worker–led funding and movement initiatives that are looking to reform and replace the systems that leave too many communities marginalized, underserved and disenfranchised.

Trans Communities Are Under Attack. Here’s How Philanthropy Must Respond — Inside Philanthropy

"We know that long-term, general support grants are what will ultimately sustain and strengthen the power-building, programmatic and capacity-building needs of emerging trans-led organizations. We need funders to listen to, trust and invest in trans leadership and trans-led organizations." — Aldita Gallardo, Fund For Trans Generations, Borealis Philanthropy

Legislatures across the nation are stripping away trans rights and legalizing discriminatory practices. Aldita Gallardo of the Fund for Trans Generations urges action, encouraging funders to listen to—and fund—trans communities.

I've been calling NCRP for a month. Out of all of the calls I made, someone answered twice. They took my email address and assured me that someone would be in contact with me. I haven't heard anything. How can I get help reporting a charitable organization for not responding when your organization does the same? I started contacting NCRP BEFORE the Co-vid crisis.

Hey guys.. I live here in Cullman, AL and am trying to teach my 8 year old twins that it is better to give than to receive. I'm trying to raise enough money to give 5 (or more) veterans a full-size Tempurpedic mattress this year. We want nothing more than to enable them to sleep comfortably. Is there any way you can help me share our campaign? Please, please let me know if you have any questions at all. My email is [email protected]. Thanks and God bless! https://www.gofundme.com/6e6uwag
If you are interested in fighting prejudice and expanding opportunity for marginalized people, this is the place! It's a free and uplifting gathering, no solicitations allowed. Plus, great session on intersectionality. Where else will you hear 5 speakers who are blind, 4 who use wheelchairs, plus many others with disabilities and superstar allies?
A Free $100,000 Credit Card That Will End All Poverty Please Contact the Bill & Malesia Gates Foundation On My Behave Bill & Malesia Gates Foundation Contact Link https://www.gatesfoundation.org/Who-We-Are/General-Information/Contact-Us Chester City Non-Profit Credit Card Program Chester, Pennsylvania 19013 610-329-0240 – fax: 610-872-2005 501(c) (3) Non-Profit ID#: 23-3059597 Confidential: The undersigned reader acknowledges that the information provided by, Chester City Non-Profit Collateral, /Kirk Tillery is confidential in every word of this and its related information. Therefore, the reader(s) agrees not to disclose, use, or discuss any and all of the enclosed information without the approval and written permission of, Chester City Non-Profit. Before reading this information in part or full, you are fully acknowledging or agreeing that you understand the above statements. Executive Summary: Please take a few minutes to read this important information, to get a better understanding of the positive work that we are doing here in the, City of Chester. Living by choice in one of the poorest cities in America, is a serious challenge which most people will never have to suffer through. Born and raised in Chester, life has dealt myself and many others a hand that gives us the courage to do the work that must be done, to make life a little better for its residents. We could move and hope for the best, but we refuse to do so without trying to change this city and the many cities like it, all across America. There is no easy way to do this hard work or to ask if you would find it in your heart to donate to the Chester Non-Profit Credit Card Programs first fund raiser… Concept/Description/Chester City: This system will create a return donation from any original collateral donor like the Bill & Malesia Gates Foundation, as well as end poverty in all improvised communities across America. We will create a special credit card that is distributed for free by a local bank or certified accounting firm that is located in or near this improvised city. This special credit card will be designed or limited to purchase only goods, services, and merchandise, from merchants within this particular city that has a population of 25,000 adult residents. Only long-term twenty year plus citizens and entrepreneurs will be the benefactors of these credit cards. Distribution: After finding a collateral donor who is willing to donate $100,000 per citizen or $25,000,000/50,000,000 of soon to be re-imbruted temporary donated funds, we can start the process of healing and ending poverty in the city of Chester perennially. The original donated collateral will be secured and never fully used and will be returned with interest, at the original donators request once the program is up and running. The key that makes this system full proof is that these credit cards can “only” be used to buy and sell merchandise in the city of Chester by the residents and the merchants. The merchants will add a slightly higher fee of 20% increase for each item sold in order to raise returnable donations to our original donator. Not only will this bring new startup businesses to the city, but it will spark the interest of corporate America/Wall Street once the system is in place and repeated by the original parties, every three months/quarter. This new system will also give a boost to the local improvised school district, increase tax revenues, citizens re-investing back into their communities, local college education for adults & kids, etc. This new type of revolving cash flow for improvised cities will also create a source of cash flow for any particular city that’s working within this same system. This collateral donation system will give Chester city and other improvised cities a sense of direction, as well as personal or induvial wealth advancements. This win, win, system will also make the original donor, merchant, and bank weather, as they start to have increased cash flow, every two months instead of three. As local merchants increase their inventory to high end products instead of selling low end products, these items will sell much faster as residents start small businesses in this city and will be able to afford these high end items. As the local residents and merchants make deposits into the local bank, their communities will also benefit from increase lines of credit, other types of donations, loans and etc... Business: After inventory and balance sheets are reviewed by the local certified accountant, a signed detailed agreement/contract with all local suppliers, groceries stores, gas stations, retardants, conveyance stores, repair shops, etc., will be noted and filed before the bank re-pay each merchants for items sold through these special credit card purchases. The 20% mockup collected by the merchants for each item sold will also be returned to the original collateral donor’s bank account for re-imbuement of donated funds used.
