A Better Normal for Arizona Series: Philanthropy’s Role in Supporting Tribal Communities

July 31, 2020, 1 - 2:30 p.m.
Location: Videoconference


Registration is required for all Arizona Grantmakers Forum events. Participation is limited to board members, trustees and staff at all levels from Arizona Grantmakers member organizations unless otherwise noted.

Grantmaking organizations across the state have been quick to respond to the immediate threats that nonprofits face from COVID-19 and its economic fallout. However, the concurrent crises have exposed and exacerbated the disparities among many under-resourced groups even before the pandemic. How can philanthropy evolve its practices to be more equitable and better support nonprofits and communities we collectively serve?

Please join us for the second session in this series where we will focus on Arizona’s tribal communities. With a panel of experts, we will unpack the historical treatment of Indigenous people and gain insights into ways philanthropy should respond to and interact with tribal communities.
