Encourage AFN membership to broaden and deepen their commitment to supporting economic security and asset building strategies that target diverse communities.

How Can Funders Get Involved?

As a benefit of AFN membership, funders may nominate local nonprofits focused on building economic security/asset building in communities of color to highlight as part of the EA series.
AFN members will also receive the opportunity to participate in a brief interactive virtual video presentation that will be shared with national AFN membership, allowing your organization to showcase innovative models and best practices to help build a more secure future for diverse communities.

Considerations for Eligible Organizations

Organizations and nonprofits must meet following criteria to be highlighted as part of the EA spotlight series:
  1. Organizations must be recommended by an AFN member in good standing who is currently or has previously provided funding to the project or organization.
  2. Organizations must be majority Persons of Color (POC)-led based on the following definitions: 51% or more of staff leadership, board, and/or governing body are POC.
  3. Organizations should be able to demonstrate established relationships and have a good track record of working on activities that impact POC communities.
  4. Organizations issue areas must align with at least one of AFN’s issue domains, with a clear preference for projects/efforts that have a clear tie back to AFN regional geographies.
As part of the EA series, AFN members will also receive the opportunity to participate in a brief interactive virtual video presentation that will be shared with national AFN membership and through various social media platforms, allowing your organization to showcase innovative models and best practices to help build a more secure future for diverse communities.
