From February-April 2022, NCG, San Francisco Foundation, and a multi-foundation planning committee are hosted a time-limited learning community that deepened understanding and application of c(4) status, c(3)’s legal ability to conduct lobbying, investments, and other legal structures that can sharpen philanthropy’s advocacy tools for advancing equity. A core premise of this learning series was that c(4) activity can be helpful in the movement building that is at the center of contemporary equity Grantmaking. The series was built on preliminary conversations about working through the mechanics of c(4) and positions interested foundations to take further action.

As a follow-up to the learning series, we are hosting a funder roundtable for series participants. Our goal for this roundtable is that funders: 

  • Learn about (c)(3) and (c)(4)-aligned funding opportunities related to the Democracy Dollars measure in Oakland, a local effort with national implications;
  • Connect and share with your peers what you have done since completing the series; &,
  • Lift up opportunities to work together.

This discussion will be most effective if participants come prepared to share and learn.  If you have specific resources or ideas you would like to share with the group, please email Crispin Delgado at Please note that this roundtable is invite-only.
