Government services, structures and systems are an essential foundation for a healthy economy where opportunity and prosperity are broadly and equitably shared. The twin pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism have exposed and deepened our current economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities and spurred a new moment of national reckoning on racial justice. Join us to learn more about key provisions in the federal budget and recovery package, upcoming budget debates, and strategies to advance worker justice, social protections and an economy that works for all.

This webinar is the first program of the EOF 2021 Virtual Budget and Tax Briefing. EOF hosts an annual Budget and Tax Briefing to provide funders and philanthropic advisors with a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss why federal and state budget and tax work matters to national, state and local philanthropy. Due to the COVID pandemic, we have decided to shift this year’s Budget Briefing to a no contact, high engagement virtual series of events. The series will include four funder learning webinars on Thursdays in April.
