Rising Stars: Supporting Emerging Organizations and their Leadership

New organizations emerged in response to COVID-19, 2020’s racial reckoning, and to meet the rising needs and service gaps in communities. Many of these organizations are led by BIPOC leaders, have small budgets, small teams, and are often fiscally sponsored. What do these emerging organizations need for long term sustainability? How can funders support these organizations?

Philanthropy often sides with organizations with experience and longevity, how can philanthropy reframe its commitment to include emerging organizations leading the way? Hear from the Korean American Community Foundation of San Francisco, James B. McClatchy Foundation, and the Race, Gender and Human Rights Fund about their work investing in emerging organizations. We will also be joined by Ucedrah Osby, Executive Director of Community Interventions, who will share the needs, challenges and opportunities to support the organizational resilience of small emerging organizations.

Join us to

  • Discuss the unique needs of these organizations and their leaders
  • Learn how funders are supporting and funding emerging organizations
  • Discuss how funders can support the growth, leadership, and long-term resilience of small and emerging organizations
