Joint Foundation Statement on Immigration

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

SCG would like to share an opportunity from Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) to address the recent immigration executive orders. 

Your foundation can join GCIR, SCG members, and other state and national philanthropic organizations who have signed on to the statement. Participating SCG members include California Community Foundation, The California Wellness Foundation, The California Endowment, Fund for Santa Barbara, The James Irvine Foundation, Latino Community Foundation, and Weingart Foundation.

Signers are calling for policies to recognize global interdependence, honor our tradition of welcoming those seeking refuge and a better life, and keep families together to make our communities stronger, safer, and more prosperous.

For more information or to sign the statement, contact Caleb Beaudoin at GCIR. If joining, please provide the name of your foundation and the name and title of your signer (i.e., the CEO, the board chair, or both).
