To The Rescue?
Foundations’ Grantmaking Response to the Financial Crisis
Friday, May 7, 2010 - 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
When the financial crisis first struck in late 2008, a flurry of foundation press releases promised to maintain commitments to grantees, uphold foundations’ missions, cut their own administrative costs, and establish emergency funds and other initiatives to help those hardest hit. It’s not too soon to take a look at how the foundations have performed in the crisis.
We know, for instance, that foundation giving fell 8.4 percent between 2008 to 2009. But beyond that, what specific programs have foundations undertaken, for instance, to help homeowners deal with the problem of sub-prime mortgages and foreclosure, and help those out of work find new employment or workforce retraining? How did foundations respond to the shifting dynamics of the recession? Which foundations distinguished themselves in these trying times?
