The national affinity group Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) has invited funders across the U.S. to sign onto a joint foundation statement on immigration.

William Penn Foundation to invest $100 million in the city's Rebuild effort


The William Penn Foundation is committing $100 million to support Rebuild, Philadelphia's seven-year, $500 million initiative to revitalize Philadelphia's parks, libraries and rec centers as a way to fight poverty and strengthen neighborhoods. The grant is the largest in foundation's history. William Penn's interim executive director Shawn McCaney called Rebuild an "unprecedented and once-in-a-generation opportunity" and said it could become a national model for data-driven community reinvestment, which could spur support from national donors.
