Advocacy Grant Celebration (OPEN TO ALL)
September 13, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Come learn about our new Advocacy grant initiative and celebrate our grantees! Hear from members of the Advocacy Grant Committee about our learnings and from grantees about their work.
When refreshing our grants, our goal was to develop a funding framework that would contribute to lasting change by deepening community resilience, strengthening community leadership, supporting community-led advocacy, and committing community-directed resources. The Advocacy Grant Committee reviewed applications from organizations that engage in advocacy as part of their work and are focused on one of our three priorities for 2022: Community Cultural Preservation, Mental Health & Housing, and the School to Prison Pipeline. This committee focused on advocacy grantmaking, not taking direct advocacy action. The grant committee is made up of WaWF members and community members. WaWF understands advocacy as work that seeks to advance an idea, argue a position, and/or enrich the debate about an issue of public concern. This could include education, research, litigation, campaigning, grassroots organizing, or nonpartisan political work.
The Advocacy Grant Celebration will take place on Tuesday, September 13th at 3PM.
This virtual celebration is open to all and will be recorded. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
