Speakers: Christine Lim & Amy Fitzgerald, East Bay Community Foundation
Financial advisors and community foundations have a long history of supporting their communities during times of crisis and disaster–connecting those who want to help with nonprofits that offer critical services. The initial response to Covid-19, however, is unprecedented in its size and scope–and community foundations are rising to the challenge. The East Bay Community Foundation, for example, launched the “Covid-19: Just East Bay Response Fund” on March 18th and raised more than $4 million in pooled resources to deploy to organizations addressing the social and economic impacts of the outbreak. EBCF has already granted over $1 million to East Bay organizations who are providing direct financial assistance to individuals and families experiencing economic hardship, as well as frontline organizations that are supporting the most vulnerable populations in our community. Join us for our August meeting to hear how FPA members and the East Bay Community Foundation can continue to support our clients’ philanthropic needs and support our community. We will hear three short presentations on these topics:
* Grantee Spotlight — Safe Return Project: Prison is No Place for a Pandemic
* Utilizing the Strength of YOUR Community Foundation, by Amy Fitzgerald, Sr. Program Officer at EBCF
* Successful Philanthropic Conversations During the Covid-19 Pandemic, by Christine Lim, Sr. Development Officer at EBCF
