This session, held on 04/08/21 in partnership with Economic Opportunity Funders, was the first of a two-part series designed to 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. Pressing policy developments, key battles and opportunities at the federal, state and local levels were discussed. Links to resources can be found below.
Each year, Grantmakers Income Security Taskforce (GIST) and Grantmakers for Children, Youth and Families (GCYF) co-sponsor an Annual Budget and Tax Briefing for their members. This year, to increase the reach of this discussion to grantmakers who are unable to travel to Washington DC, the keynote address from this annual briefing, featuring Bob Greenstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, was made available to GWP members via live webstream.
