Back in April, NCG's Annual Conference focused on income inequality in the Bay Area. Why? Because we recognized that income inequality was an issue that we couldn't ignore. Because every day there is a new story about how communities, neighborhoods, and businesses were affected by the rapid transformation of the economic landscape.
On November 6th members will have another opportunity to explore this issue at the upcoming NCG program Addressing Displacement of Nonprofit Organizations.
Should I Attend This Program?
I don't fund economic development.
No matter what your funding priorities are, you can be sure that this issue is affecting your grantees. It's affecting your grantees' rent. It's affecting your grantees' staff. It's affecting your grantees' ability to do their work. It's affecting the communities your grantees serve and that means it's affecting the impact of your work.
Knowledge is Power
So what should I do?
The School House Rock adage is true: knowledge is power. Even if addressing income inequality isn't one your of funding priorities, you can still learn as much as possible about the issue in order to better inform your grantmaking practice.
