for support of the Funders’ Summit
Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) is a philanthropic laboratory for funders seeking to maximize their impact on democracy and civic life in the U.S. This grant will provide support for PACE, in partnership with the Democracy Funders Network, to host a convening for funders to discuss the root causes of the problems limiting the efficacy of our governing institutions and to explore strategies for strengthening them. The goal of the summit is to provide an opportunity for funders to learn, to place issues of effective governance within the broader ecosystem of threats to the health of American democracy, and to grow the community of funders invested in this issue.
