Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

June is Immigrant Heritage Month, a time during which we celebrate our origins as a nation of immigrants. The Council’s staff, its board, it strategic partners, its member organizations and the communities they serve are all inclusive of immigrants. As a national organization and a leading voice within the philanthropic sector, the Council takes great pride in the diversity represented by this immigrant population and the rich difference of perspectives it brings to the important work our members do.

Throughout the month of June, we remember and honor those affected by the tragedy in Orlando. We lift up those who have worked to recover, aided by the many who have contributed funds, time, and energy to the communities that were impacted. We also celebrate the many achievements of the LGBTQ community and the advancements made toward LGBTQ equality.
