Today we publicly announced that we are accepting applications from members for the Gilbert Fund 2020 funding cycle. We are humbled by the overwhelming response we have already received. As a nonprofit ourselves, we know that nonprofit staff are on the frontline helping our communities daily, and are now responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are reviewing requests and thank you for your interest.
We are also supporting the long-term stability of the sector through advocacy in Congress for passage of H.R. 4523. Congressman Bennie G. Thompson needs to hear from all nonprofits, please reply to and repost his message: https://twitter.com/BennieGThompson/status/1240695058904412160.
Nonprofits create a strong, safe and resilient America, especially as we respond to #COVID19. Why wouldn’t we want to strengthen nonprofits? Make H.R. 4523 a priority and give nonprofits more options to protect themselves. #strongerAmerica
