Creating a culture of economic resilience is at the heart of Asset Funders Network’s approach.
In the wake of the COVID-19, protecting assets, rebuilding assets, and changing systems to address expanded racial and gender wealth gaps looms large for AFN and its members.
It is during this time, AFN tightens its focus on resiliency efforts and directs its attention and support on three areas our members can make the most significant positive contribution:
- Relief programs that immediately offer economic security help to communities in need
- Recovery programs to help rebuild financial stability with low and moderate income households especially in nonbank sectors of the population
- Rebuild equitable programs, capital investments, and policies to reduce and prevent the devastating financial strain on low and moderate income working families
Resources at Your Fingertips
In response to the urgent need for creative and replicable support from philanthropy, AFN is working to connect funders and rapidly deploy the ideas, experiences, new strategies, and resources of its membership network for recovering and protecting the assets of low income and working families.
