GCIR envisions a society in which everyone thrives no matter where they were born. To make that vision a reality, we galvanize philanthropy to advance immigrant and refugee justice and belonging. As the nation’s only immigrant-focused philanthropy-mobilizing organization, we work with our more than 140 member institutions, the 1,200 individual grantmakers in our network, our partners in the field, and other philanthropic affinity groups to move money and power for immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
In 2017, Inside Philanthropy named GCIR the Funders’ Affinity Group of the Year for leading funder pushback to anti-immigrant policies. Today, amid both continued challenges and significant opportunities for immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, we are building on our 32-year history to drive short- and long-term immigrant-related philanthropic investments and advance a vision for a just, equitable, and inclusive society for all.
Our work in the philanthropic sector is grounded in the following values:
Justice: We are committed to racial, social, and economic justice.
Belonging: We believe that belonging is essential to building strong communities and a healthy democracy.
Humanity: We believe that everyone is connected by our shared humanity.
Courage: We believe that taking risks is imperative to achieve a just and equitable society.
Solidarity: We are united with other movements and communities in the pursuit of civil and human rights.
The GCIR staff comes from all walks of life, many of us with immigrant and refugee backgrounds and some of us with non-traditional career paths. We have an office in the San Francisco Bay Area and remote staff in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, the Washington, D.C. metro area, Boston, and Washington State. GCIR members are local, state, regional, and national foundations that transcend issue areas, strategies, and geographic regions. For more information, visit www.gcir.org.
