About this grant
The Grantmakers Income Security Taskforce – created by the Finance Project – is a group of funders who are concerned with the social and economic conditions that generate and perpetuate poverty. The goal of the taskforce is to broaden the perspectives of funders on critical issues; deepen their understanding of issues in which they are already active; and promote strategic, collaborative grantmaking.Funding will enable the taskforce to plan and coordinate regular, quarterly meetings; create and implement a regular conference all and/or Web site series; develop and disseminate an electronic newsletter; enhance its visibility within the larger grantmaking community; and provide an institutional home for the Earned Income Tax Credit and Asset-Building funders networks.
