Funding News and Grant Tips

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak there will be a temporary interruption in the Funding Alert until further notice. We will resume the alert as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding.

Candid Launches Coronavirus Webpage
Candid has announced the creation of a pop-up webpage to share information about the global philanthropic response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic https://candid.org/explore-issues/coronavirus.
The page will be updated automatically as data and news are added to the organization's database. According to Candid vice president of data and technology Jake Garcia, the data on the page is coded using the organization's taxonomy, while the news section is updated daily from a set of some three hundred thousand source articles.
The page also includes access to a free disaster funding map that includes the response to the coronavirus outbreak, as well as several resources curated by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy that are designed to help funders be more effective in their response to the coronavirus emergency.
"In a crisis, there's a lot of pressure to react. Decisions get made more quickly," said Garcia. "We're sharing this information so that the social sector can make informed decisions. We plan to do more of these pages on important topics going forward."

Survey Suggests Colleges Could Better Engage Younger Alumni in Giving
While a majority of younger college graduates regularly volunteer or give to charity, they tend to focus those efforts on causes or organizations that are able to demonstrate impact, a report from RNL and the Schuler Education Foundation finds.
Based on survey responses from forty thousand alumni of thirty-six colleges who graduated between 2002 and 2017, the 2020 National Young Alumni Survey (11 pages, PDF) found that 87 percent of respondents volunteer for (58 percent) or give to (76 percent) a charitable cause or organization. Of those who made cash donations, 25 percent reported giving at least $1,000 in 2018 — including 3 percent who gave at least $10,000 — and 64 percent reported giving to their alma mater. Not surprisingly, higher education (37 percent) topped the list of issue areas and organization types supported by respondents, followed by social justice (32 percent), political organizations (30 percent), health care (29 percent), and women-focused nonprofits (26 percent). When asked which causes they aspired to support, however, more than half of those who give mentioned the environment (56 percent), social justice (53 percent), community development (51 percent), women-focused issues (51 percent), and K-12 education (49 percent).

Progress Toward Gender Equality Is Slowing, UNDP Report Finds
Global progress toward achieving gender equality is slowing, with entrenched social norms and pervasive biases and prejudices against women persisting among both men and women, a report from the United Nations Development Programme finds. 
Based on UNDP Gender Social Norms Index data from seventy-five countries, the report, Tackling Social Norms: A Game Changer for Gender Inequalities (37 pages, PDF), found that the average of the countries' Gender Inequality Index, which fell steadily between 1995 and 2010, plateaued in 2013 and then ticked up slightly between 2017 and 2018. Released ahead of International Women's Day, the study found that while most countries have removed legal barriers to equality — more women than ever have access to education and can participate in the formal economy, vote, and run for public office — social norms still restrict women's empowerment and leadership in the economic, social, and political sphere.

We award seed grants to service providers that plan to offer new, dementia-specific Group Respite or specialized Early Memory Loss (EML) programming to participants, along with support to caregivers, in order to help individuals remain in their communities. For over thirty years, the Brookdale National Group Respite Program (BNGRP) has supported community-based organizations through modest seed grants, along with training and technical assistance, to develop dementia-specific, social model day programs. Our goal is to foster the development of high-quality, cost-effective programs to complement the existing services in the community for people with dementia, and to encourage and support our grantees to become self-sustaining.
