1. Ford Foundation: Why Black Lives Matter to Philanthropy "The Movement for Black Lives has created an opportunity for philanthropy to see and learn from new and dynamic forms of social justice leadership and infrastructure. To support and fund this thriving movement, philanthropy itself has had to adapt. Meanwhile, leaders have kept donors’ good intentions in check with candid reminders of how philanthropy can hurt a movement, as well as how it can help. "

Thanks to the persistence of social innovators across the country, every day we see strategies that are working and delivering results in a rapidly changing world. This ongoing blog series will highlight the voices of our Coalition of 70+ social innovators and their innovative solutions to our country’s most pressing social problems, as well as examples of how this powerful work can be transformed into national change. Today we will hear from AnnMaura Connolly, Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Vice President at City Year, an America Forward Coalition organization, and President of Voices for National Service, an America Forward partner organization, about the strong bipartisan support for national service, and how service can be instrumental in addressing local needs in a cost-effective manner, as well as in helping young adults make the critical transition from college to career.
