The Washington Census Equity Fund, managed by Philanthropy Northwest, is a statewide pooled fund of philanthropy partners to support 2020 Census outreach, education and resources to ensure a robust and accurate count. Key goals of the fund include:
- Increase communication and coordination of work around the 2020 Census in Washington
- Achieve effective, efficient, strategic and increased philanthropic investments
- Support education, community outreach, regional communications, policy advocacy and other “Get Out the Count” activities
- Prioritize funding for outreach in hard-to-count communities
This conference call is for Washington Census Equity Fund partners to receive updates on the 2020 Census, discuss strategy, and make funding decisions. Agenda and handouts will be shared with Equity Fund partners 1 week in advance.
We invite philanthropic organizations, even if you are not part of the Washington Census Equity Fund, to join this conversation for a deep dive conversation on how COVID-19 is impacting the 2020 Census. If you would like to join this call, please contact Ankita Patel.
