As leaders in philanthropy, we recognize the critical need to act with fierce urgency to support our nonprofit partners as well as the people and communities hit hardest by the impacts of COVID-19. We invite funders and other leaders is the philanthropic sector to join us in making these commitments and collectively holding ourselves accountable to them by signing this pledge of action.

As a convener of grantmakers of all sizes, focus areas, geographies and, increasingly, those who are structuring their philanthropy in new and creative ways, the Council has an opportunity to serve as a leadership voice for our field, shifting the narrative and public perception of philanthropy and ensuring that all of us are working to elevate the common good and advance humanity. But in order to do this, we need you. More specifically, we need your voice, your input and your ideas. For the remainder of 2019, I and my Council colleagues will be gathering information about how the Council can best serve you and your organizations as you do your important work. What’s your vision for philanthropy? And how can the Council, in partnership with other strong sector partners, be a part of making that vision possible?
