About this Series
Western landscapes have always burned and always will. The more we suppress fire and change the climate, the more catastrophic wildfires become. How can we make communities and wild lands more resilient in the age of megafire?
Latino Community Foundation and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund joined forces to produce this roadmap to secure a fair and accurate count in the midst of unprecedented challenges.
As Philanthropy California, we join our partners in philanthropy, along with advocates and immigrant communities, in calling for an end to the practice of separating children from their parents as part of the Administration’s “zero tolerance” policy on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The time to ensure the count is here! The 2020 Census has faced many challenges — the attempt to include an untested citizenship question, delays in funding, and now the untold impact of COVID-19.
Last month, Philanthropy California virtually convened over 600 funders from across California for a day dedicated to philanthropy's role in strengthening our democracy and civic engagement during this unprecedented moment.
Across the nation, numerous initiatives and programs are converging to create an increased focus on nonprofit overhead and funding the full cost of program delivery.
A fair and accurate census that reflects our communities is absolutely vital to ensure that Californians receive access to resources and equal political representation.
We are at an exciting time in our history. We are expanding upon our more than 40-year legacy of building relationships between the private and public sectors while enhancing the impact of individual and collaborative projects for the public good.
The Full Cost Project is a joint initiative of Philanthropy California and Nonprofit Finance Fund to support a funding model that honestly assesses the full cost for organizations to deliver on their missions and to be sustainable over time. We are bringing together education, advocacy, and skill-building with the goal to increase the number of funders that provide full cost funding and to build the skills and capacity of all those engaged in grantmaking – foundations, corporations, individuals, and government.
Funders for LGBTQ Issues, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees, and Philanthropy California are united in opposition to the proposed changes to Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. LGBTQ people, immigrants, and people seeking reproductive care will be hurt by these proposed changes. As philanthropic serving organizations dedicated to the health and wellbeing of these communities, and social justice values more broadly, we are speaking out and taking action.
Despite the Administration’s efforts to weaponize basic needs programs, the new public charge rule will not go unchallenged. Already legal challenges have been filed to prevent the rule from going into effect. Funders can play a critical role in protecting the health and well-being of immigrant families. We're sharing specific actions that funders should consider.
Find upcoming webinars, recordings of past webinars, and events in the field taking place in response to COVID-19.

The systems and infrastructure that support and protect the most vulnerable immigrants have been affected by cuts in refugee admissions to the U.S., federal funding cuts, and administrative barriers that continue to make seeking protection from persecution more difficult every day.

The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is far reaching and includes major implications for nonprofits and the communities that they serve.
Leading the city post-bankruptcy is Mayor Michael Tubbs, who has garnered considerable media attention. Tubbs, who had served a four-year city council term, was elected mayor in November 2016 with 70 percent of the vote, becoming the city’s first Black mayor and, at the age of 26, its youngest ever as well.
