About this grant
Interfaith Funders works to expand resources for faith-based community organizing through collaborative research and raising awareness among grantmakers of the value of faith-based community organizing.Funding will enable Interfaith Funders to commission and disseminate research on faith-based community organizing; sponsor workshops, briefings and other learning sessions for funders; and convene practitioners to consider issues that challenge the field.During the past year, the organization has increased financial support for congregation-based organizing; helped practitioners in the field conduct a series of conversations with organizers and faith leaders to develop indicators for balancing the desire to expand with the need to develop congregational leaders; and assisted faith leaders to include studies of community organizing in seminary preparation.
