Seeing the incredible successes of the Massachusetts Census Equity Fund and the fair redistricting efforts now underway with the support of the Drawing Democracy Fund, there is growing interest in exploring additional ways  philanthropy and the nonprofit sector can collectively advance long term civic engagement and strengthen our democracy.  Successes like these are due in part to collaborations between the philanthropic community and organizations that are working to ensure our democracy is working for all residents of Massachusetts.

At a recent meeting of a group of funders and partners, a set of questions were raised that prompted an interest in inviting colleagues from all over Massachusetts to a conversation on long term civic engagement.

  • Are you investing in or interested in learning more about these issues in Massachusetts?
  • What approaches are you taking to increase civic engagement in your community?
  • Who are your trusted partners that are equipped to do this work?
  • What approaches would you like to learn more about or share with others?

Funders in Massachusetts are invited to join an exploratory conversation to address these questions, share about your work, and discuss strategies to build on our recent successes to ensure a strong democracy in the Commonwealth.
