Addendum: Nonprofits and Philanthropy Weigh In on Displacement
Over the course of four briefings with funders and nonprofits we gathered tremendous input toward solutions on the issue of displacement. On behalf of the working group who has guided this effort, we are pleased to provide this summary of many of the good ideas participants contributed.
This report is the first reflecting the region as a whole and we anticipate a funder-initiated working group will engage a range of stakeholders, funders, government, policy advocates and nonprofits to move forward together.
We will continue to inform and be informed by folks who’ve expressed interest in the briefings as we explore potential solutions.
It’s clear from the breadth of ideas generated through the briefings that a spectrum of short and long-term approach is needed. The recommendations here reflect the need to address the cyclical nature of the problem.
For funders, the driving concern continues to be about the sustainability of the nonprofit sector who are integral to the social, cultural, political and economic fabric of our community.
