But I'm Not an Immigrant Funder!

Florida has a large and growing population of immigrants from all over the world who contribute to its vibrancy. What are the issues facing this community and what is philanthropy’s role?

In this informational and interactive webinar, funders will learn about the state’s newcomer population, their contributions to the Sunshine State, and how the Executive Orders and recent proposed policies may impact immigrant families and affect Florida’s communities. We’ll explore how funders at the local, state, and national levels have integrated an understanding of the needs and contributions of newcomers into their work across multiple funding areas, including health, poverty reduction, economic opportunity, and education. 

Florida Philanthropic Network and Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees are partnering for this learning opportunity which will ground Florida funders on these important issues and identify what funders can do now to support all communities.
