Today, NCRP proudly marks the 2nd anniversary of Philanthropy’s Promise, an initiative with 165 grantmakers from across the U.S. that have pledged majority of their grant dollars to benefit underserved communities. They have also promised to provide substantial support for policy-changing advocacy and community organizing that is essential to making this country and the world a better place for all people.
We celebrate the bold leadership of these foundations that demonstrate to their peers in the sector how high-impact grantmaking strategies are helping improve lives, create vibrant communities and help address the challenging social issues of our time.
Be a part of our celebrations!
