About this grant

This grant will enable Interfaith Funders to continue commissioning and disseminating research on faith-based community organizing; sponsoring workshops, funder briefings and other learning sessions; and organizing meetings for practitioners to consider issues that challenge the field.During the past year, the organization worked to increase philanthropic support for congregation-based organizing; assisted practitioners in the field by sponsoring a study tour/site visit to faith-based community organizing groups in Los Angeles; and encouraged faith leaders, especially in the Jewish community, to include studies of community organizing in seminary preparation. Interfaith Funders is an affinity group of grantmakers working to expand sources of support for faith-based community organizing.
