|For the Roundtable’s next conversation, we want to highlight the policy changes that most affect families and the strategies funders are using to support, shape, or defend against these changes. |
To get a sense of your family-focused philanthropy, policy, and equity priorities in 2019 and 2020, we are surveying our members and asking our affinity group partners to distribute the survey as well. We will release a report outlining trends in the field and ways we can better work together.
Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/kidpolicies
All data will be confidential. The final report will feature trends we see across the data and will not highlight individual organizations. Your survey responses will not be shared. If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, please contact Catherine Jahnes at Catherine@fundersroundtable.org.”
The Census faces a major problem – undercounting young children, especially those in low-income or immigrant families. These children and families face the consequences for years, including decreased funding for necessary supports, such as food programs, affordable housing, and education. We can do better! Funders are gearing up for Census 2020. Join us to learn more about the myriad ways to get involved in your community.
