From Crisis to Action Part 3: Strategizing for Rural Resilience

In June & July, NCG and the UC Merced Community & Labor Center brought funders, government, and leading community, work, and labor organizations dedicated to serving farmworkers and rural communities across California together – both virtually and in the San Joaquin Valley. These events cast a spotlight on the social and economic impacts of the 2023 floods, while also examining the persistent inequities that rural and farmworker communities experience.

Please join NCG for an in-person strategy session on how to drive philanthropic action & collaboration for rural and farmworker communities across California. This will be an opportunity for funders to share their own strategies, learn from other funding strategies in rural communities, and consider what philanthropic coordination or alignment could look like.

We know that communities across the state hold the expertise, innovation, and solutions for building resilience to the challenges they face. Philanthropy must respond to their need for resources at the scale and speed that the urgency of the moment demands.

Goals for the From Crisis to Action series:

  1. Move resources to communities recovering from climate change-fueled disasters across the State
  2. Build a deeper understanding of the historical importance of rural communities (e.g., the Central Valley, Central Coast, North Coast, Sierria Nevada’s) and the many intersectional issues in need of resourcing (climate and disaster resilience, public health, workers' rights, immigration reform, food security and nutrition, democracy, housing & infrastructure, etc.)
  3. Explore options for immediate philanthropic action/collaboration

You are welcome (and strongly encouraged) to attend this session even if you did not join the tour but have an interest in the Central Valley, rural communities, farmworkers & immigration, climate & disaster resilience, capacity building, or non-profit resilience. This strategy session will be used to inform how NCG continues to engage with funders and community around these issues.

There will be a light refreshment of coffee and pastries provided.
