To help PSOs overcome financial barriers to engaging in racial equity work, the Forum is offering mini-grant opportunities for our members, thanks to support from Borealis Philanthropy’s Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fund. This mini-grant program will provide Forum members with small grants, up to $5,500, to cover all or part of the costs of a trainer, facilitator, or speaker (or related program expenses) to engage with staff, board, and/or members on an aspect of advancing racial equity.
The Forum is recruiting new volunteer leadership that is enthusiastic, eager to build their skills, and committed to enhancing the network's peer community experience. We are looking for leadership for our Communications, Emerging Leaders, Finance & Administration, Membership, Public Policy and Programs Peer Communities
United Philanthropy Forum held a three-day conference where dynamics speakers discussed pressing topics ranging from the state of philanthropy to the important history behind family photos.
A new United Philanthropy Forum report gives the most up-to-date data on the employment practices of regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs). The 2019 Compensation & Benefits for Philanthropy-Serving Organizations report provides detailed compensation and benefits information to help PSOs learn from their peers and benchmark themselves against similar organizations.
Developed by The Giving Practice (TGP) in partnership with United Philanthropy Forum and Northern California Grantmakers, this guide shares seven practices and 12 tools for philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) who seek effective ways to mobilize resources to sustain their organization’s work
United Philanthropy Forum applauds and celebrates the news that the 2020 Census will NOT include a question about citizenship. This is a victory for everyone who has been fighting for a fair and accurate census count—as required by the U.S. Constitution. It is a victory for democracy and a victory for all Americans.
United Philanthropy Forum commends the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to affirm the District Court’s ruling to remand the case to the U.S. Department of Commerce. Given the upcoming census printing deadline, it’s unlikely the citizenship question will become part of the 2020 Census.
