Annual Meeting & Anniversary Party Virtual Celebration 2020

84 IWCF members and guests celebrated both our 2020 grantees and member anniversaries at this combined event! It was a touching virtual presentation where we learned that despite the pandemic, grantees past and present are finding ways to move forward with their projects and connect with their constituency, and IWCF members are staying engaged with 98% voting in the spring. Board President, Christine Avey, shared a look forward including new member payment options, and how IWCF is set to hit a $5 million grant milestone in our upcoming 20th Anniversary year! We were also pleased to watch a video of each 2020 grantee explain in their own words where they are with their projects – including a first look at the Wassmuth Center for Human Right’s “Be an Upstander” video we funded!

Grants Panel 2020! What’s Happening?

A big thanks to our participants at IWCF’s first grants panel. As different as our nonprofits are in the guests and communities they serve, our panelists shared how they are coping with 2020 and how they are working everyday to meet people where they are at in terms of learning and services, how the word PIVOT has become the brand of 2020 from fundraising to performances, and how although this is a difficult time, they are all working, not just to get back to normal but to get somewhere better.
