May 2011 Newsletter
Spring at last! One more thing to celebrate at next week's Allies for Justice Celebration. Just a few days remain to get your tickets, so I hope you will act today, because we want to see you there!
Allies for Justice and some other really incredible events are the focus of this quarter's newsletter — including a Social Justice Scavenger Hunt and the start of a Social Justice Leadership Institute this fall. Read on for more details.
We are also in the final countdown to the end of our fiscal year (June 30), which coincides with our Social Change Fund grant round. If ever there was a time when your dollars went right to work, this is it. Every dollar we raise between now and the middle of June goes right back out the door to an amazing group of grassroots organizations. Please consider making a gift this month to support social change year-round. We need your help to make sure the organizations we support have the resources they need to do their work .
Finally, I want to share an important article with you on diversity in philanthropy. Published by the Minnesota Council of Foundations, it features the perspective of our own David Nicholson. You can read the article here.
