EOF has joined together with the Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) and other partner affinity group partners to co-sponsor GCIR‘s monthly immigration policy calls. Held on the third Thursday of most months, these calls provide the latest updates on timely policy issues affecting immigrants and refugees-and explore issues that are particularly relevant or pressing for philanthropy.
Calls are open to GCIR members, other grantmaking institutions, philanthropic advisors, and members and staff of funder affinity groups and regional associations of grantmakers. (Participation is limited to organizations that share GCIR‘s core values.)
