Join Grantmakers of Color (GOC), the Social Justice Funders Network (SJFN), Emerging Practitioners of Philanthropy (EPIP), New England Blacks in Philanthropy (NEBiP), Asian American/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP), and others as we seek to build and strengthen community as well as the networks’ capacity to impact social change efforts in Greater Boston. This virtual social event will have light programming to inform and engage current and interested individuals. We hope this event will serve as an opportunity for network members to re-engage as it has been two years since our last gathering of this kind. This event is for anyone and everyone who is involved in SJ, GOC, EPIP, NEBiP or another funder affinity group/network in the Greater Boston Area such as HIP or AAPIP. We look forward to seeing you!

About the Networks:
Grantmakers of Color, established in 2005, is a network of people of color who work in philanthropy. This peer and support network, managed and sponsored by Philanthropy Massachusetts, exists to provide opportunities to learn from those within the field and offer professional development opportunities for members.
The Social Justice Funders’ Network (SJFN) of Massachusetts emerged in 2011 from the collective desire of progressive foundations and donors in Greater Boston and statewide to build relationships and advance learning among those in the philanthropic sector working to address the root causes of the injustices in our communities.
Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP)'s mission is to empower emerging leaders and elevate philanthropic practice in order to build a more just, equitable, and sustainable world. Our national programs, regional member-led chapters, and sector advocacy give emerging leaders the opportunity to hone their craft, connect with peers around the country, develop authentic approaches to their leadership, and grow in and into an equitable sector that supports their full development as practitioners. For more information on EPIP's national programming and events, visit www.epip.org or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

New England Blacks in Philanthropy (NEBiP) is an organization that unites Black philanthropists, trustees, and grantees, to enhance philanthropy’s ability to address the needs of Black communities locally, nationally, and globally. Our mission is to inform, reform, and transform the practice of philanthropy. We are bringing forth a paradigm shift in philanthropy from focusing on Black deficits to shining a light on our considerable assets and financial leverage in order to increase the potential in our communities with the power of Black philanthropy.
Asian American/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) is a national membership and philanthropic advocacy organization working to expand and mobilize resources for Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities to build a more just and equitable society. For more information on AAPIP-Boston, contact the current chapter Chair Hehershe Busuego.
Zoom information will be sent via email in advance of the session.
