How Family Philanthropy Can Support Free, Fair, and Representative Elections in 2024

In this salon conversation, family philanthropy donors will have the opportunity to learn about critical election-related areas of giving and major 501(c)(3) funding opportunities associated with each area. After every election cycle, nonprofit leaders working on strengthening democracy and civic engagement report that the funding they received often came too late to have meaningful impact. The goal of field leaders this election cycle is to galvanize donor interest, mobilize commitments, and allocate funding for election-related priorities by April to ensure grantees have the certainty they need to put their plans in place.

Join us for a conversation that will focus on 501(c)(3) funding opportunities for family philanthropists to:

  • Engage and mobilize a diverse electorate
  • Strengthen election infrastructure
  • Protect voters in the courts
  • Counter misinformation and strengthen the media’s role in supporting democracy
  • Prepare and respond to election crises

For this interactive meeting, we encourage attendees to join with webcams on. 

If you are a family funder interested in allocating funding for election-related priorities, we invite you to join us for a salon conversation. Contact Sokol Shtylla for more information on how to register.
