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.  

Economic Opportunity Funders (EOF, formerly known as GIST) is a network of 250 funders at the national, regional and local level working to advance economic equity and opportunity across the U.S. Join EOF and GWP for EOF’s annual funders’ briefing to learn more about the 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. 

Marcia Egbert, Program Director, The George Gund Foundation (Moderator)
Dr. Michael McAfee, President and CEO, PolicyLink
Sharon Parrott, President, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

This session is the first of a two-part series which will provide funders and with a unique opportunity to learn about federal and state budget provisions and why they matter to national, state and local philanthropy. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss pressing policy developments, key battles and opportunities at the federal, state and local levels. Make sure to register for part two here.
