General Service Foundation

GSF believes everyone should have a chance to enjoy life with dignity, and every family should have the opportunity to thrive.

GSF works with nonprofit organizations as a funder and partner. These organizations are embedded in grassroots communities, networked with one another, and connected to larger movements for a decisive impact. They’re pioneers, breaking new trails toward social justice with women, people of color and people with low incomes leading the way.

Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees

GCIR seeks to influence philanthropy to advance the contributions and address the needs of the country's growing and increasingly diverse immigrant and refugee populations. In so doing, we seek to promote effective grantmaking that not only improves the lives of newcomers but also strengthens communities.

GCIR works with a growing network of member foundations, as well as the greater philanthropic community, on a wide range of immigration and immigrant integration issues, including education, health, employment, civic participation, racial and economic justice, and other concerns affecting immigrant children, youth, and families
