Strengthening Democracy Workshop

Thursday, October 25th - 26th
All Day


The Center for High Impact Philanthropy is hosting scholars, foundation staff, and nonprofit leaders for an invite-only workshop to refine our funder toolkit for strengthening democracy.

Launched in April 2018, the Strengthening Democracy aims to answer the question: how can philanthropy strengthen democracy? Our guidance will describe characteristics of a strong democracy; outline the most promising, evidence-based strategies for strengthening democracy—and provide indicators to help understand progress. Our partner in developing this guidance is Democracy Fund, a bipartisan foundation established by eBay founder and philanthropist Pierre Omidyar that invests in organizations working to ensure that our political system is able to withstand new challenges and deliver on its promise to the American people.
