Dear Friends, Colleagues and Partners,
Here is what EMpower is doing:
We are in close touch with our ~100 grantee partners to listen to their needs and strategies to address the crisis. We are offering flexibility on the use of all grant funds and on time horizons. We realize that many plans have been derailed and other priorities have emerged. We seek to provide what is most useful for each partner, offering moral and strategic support as well as funding. We take partnership very seriously.
We are looking out for the health, safety and well-being of our staff. Now all working remotely in five countries, and all online, connection is more important than ever. We are living core EMpower principles each day: empathy, dedication, trust, generosity of spirit, and humor.
Always a priority, we are redoubling efforts to raise and steward resources to channel the most possible to our partners. We are incredibly grateful to our community of supporters who show up time and again with generosity and humanity. We and our partners rely on this critical support.
As part of a strong community of peer funders and allies, we are sharing resources and strategies. We will make a bigger difference together. Via social media and this website, we will share stories of courage, determination, and ingenuity – we are hearing incredible responses from our partners to this crisis. With agility, smarts, determination and compassion, we will weather this storm together.
Stay healthy and strong,
EMpower President and CEOView All News
