Advancing Welcoming through Community Foundations

Against growing levels of global migration, demographic change, and efforts to advance equity and inclusion, community foundations have an interest in — and responsibility to — invest in efforts to create more welcoming local communities. This whitepaper, “Advancing Welcoming through Community Foundations,” explores the potential for greater coordination, collaboration, and investment from community foundations in advancing the vital work of welcoming newcomers into U.S. communities. It also explores the potential of linking the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations to the Welcoming Standard as a potential blueprint for community foundations interested in contributing to global collective impact in advancing equity, belonging, and inclusion.
