Nearly 4 million Floridians are foreign-born.
Florida has the fourth largest immigrant population in the country. Immigrants and refugees are an integral part of our communities and contribute significantly to Florida’s culture and economy.
Join FPN and Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) for the Florida Funders' Tour this April 11-13, and participate in robust discussion on:
- promising and proven investment strategies, including place-based supports and services that are effective in immigrant communities across Florida;
- relevance of issues for a wide range of grantmaking priorities with your philanthropic colleagues; and
- Florida’s diverse local immigrant communities, the contributions they make and the issues they are facing and ways you can coordinate, collaborate, and leverage funding to advance Florida’s shared future.
We will tour sites in Jacksonville, Orlando and Miami with Florida and national funders on a three-day circuit exploring how community organizations and grantmakers are responding to the needs of these diverse communities.
