    EPIP St. Louis Chapter Leaders
    Tuesday, December 17th, 2019
    8:30a - 10:00a

    Join EPIP St. Louis for a CoffeeChat! We will be sharing insights from the CHANGE Philanthropy 2019 UNITY Summit, where attendees explored strategies for shifting power to advance equity in the philanthropic sector.

    Chapter Leaders Alyssa Curran and Kristin Cowart would love to engage with you in a dynamic conversation around their learnings and insights from the 2019 CHANGE Philanthropy UNITY Summit "Building & Bridging Power” and explore how we can apply these learnings to our work in the region. 

    ​Building Power: Supporting structural and institutional CHANGE by shifting philanthropic energy towards racial equity with intersectional investment into community-led solutions.

    Bridging Power: Building relationships which leverage our collective power to ignite CHANGE that is rooted in an equitable society for all and is justice-oriented.

    More about the UNITY Summit

    The Unity Summit hosted over 1000 participants, from 10 different national affinity groups, with a focus on expanding individual and institutional practices in order to advance equity with an intersectional lens and with community at the center. Space was created for all attendees to participate as thought leaders and philanthropic activists and also learn from movement leaders' wisdom, audacious vulnerability and a commitment to action. We want to share with you the inspiring and transformative Unity Summit experience!

    EPIP NY | AAPIP Holiday Party

    For the 2019 End of Year Celebration, we have partnered with the New York Chapter of Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP). We will be creating essential school gift bags for our friends and neighbors in Sunset Park. 

    Voces Ciudadanas will be the recipient of this year's gifts. We will assemble bags of books and school supplies (for ages 1-11).  

    Voces Ciudadanas is a volunteer-run organization led by Latinx and Chinese parents in Sunset Park. Founded in 2014, parents, mostly recent immigrants, came together to fight school overcrowding. After conducting research and galvanizing parents to the Department of Education to testify, they won a commitment from the city to construct five new public schools in their neighborhood. They continue to engage more and more parents in the neighborhood by providing leadership development support throughout the year. 

    Please bring an item or two or three from the list below for the party. We will supply storybooks, wine, and food! We ask that members contribute the items. 

    A contribution is necessary for entry into the party. To ensure that we have adequate supplies, please let us know what you might be able to bring. The goal is to be able to fill at least 30 bags.

     

     

    Click here to let us know what you might be able to contribute. This only for planning purposes. We can't wait to party with you! Bring a friend.

    EPIP Bay Area | Advocacy Training: Foundations and Elections

    The 2020 elections are right around the corner, and if you work for a foundation that wants to engage in and/or fund election-related activities, this training is for you! It reviews the federal tax rules governing public and private foundation support for election-related activities and also explains the types of nonpartisan activities in which foundations may be involved, such as voter guides and candidate debates and forums. In addition, the session covers ballot measures and examines the special rules for private foundations and voter registration drives.

    Participants will learn:

    • How private and public foundations can fund nonpartisan election-related activities;
    • Special rules for private foundations looking to fund voter registration; and
    • How foundations can conduct civic engagement work.
