CPD Featured on National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy’s Blog

The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) promotes philanthropy that serves the public good, is responsive to people and communities with the least wealth and opportunity, and is held accountable to the highest standards of integrity and openness.

As part of an ongoing blog series featuring NCRP’s nonprofit members, CPD’s Network President and Co-Executive Director, Jennifer Epps-Addison, spoke to them about the importance of general operating support. NCRP explains that “Grantmaking in this new era calls for funders who trust their grantees with general operating support, and who acknowledge and support leaders of color. CPD’s successes and structure present a testament to these two needs.”

Since the 2016 election, CPD Network affiliates have helped organize more than 860 resistance events that were attended by more than half a million people. Our network also hosted over 15 major civil disobedience actions on issues ranging from immigration to taxation to health care. Without flexible funding, this work would be nearly impossible. As new problems arise faster than ever before, CPD and our affiliates, like many organizations operating in our time, need the flexibility to change course at any given moment.
