Printer-friendly version

Click on the image below to read the May 13, 2016 letter that leaders of 22 infrastructure organizations sent to 1,400 foundations across the country. The letter thanks those foundations that have invested in the well-being of the entire nonprofit community via their grantmaking to oft-hidden infrastructure organizations and urges all foundations to “consider directing at least 1 percent of their grantmaking budgets to support the infrastructure upon which the nonprofit sector is built.” It emphasizes the importance and the value of nonprofit infrastructure in helping foundations and nonprofits operate as efficiently and effectively as possible to best serve the needs of their communities.
