Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) envisions a society in which everyone thrives no matter where they were born. To make that vision a reality, we galvanize philanthropy to advance immigrant justice and belonging. As the nation’s only immigrant-focused philanthropy-supporting organization (PSO), we work with our more than 130 member institutions, the 1,200 individual grantmakers in our network, our partners in the field, and other PSOs to mobilize funder resources on the most pressing issues facing immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
In 2017, Inside Philanthropy named GCIR the Funders’ Affinity Group of the Year for leading funder pushback to anti-immigrant policies. In 2021, as we enter a new era for our organization and our country, we will build on our 30-year history to drive short- and long-term immigrant-related philanthropic investments and advance a vision for a just, equitable, and inclusive society for all.
Our work in the philanthropic sector is grounded in the following values:
Justice: We are committed to racial, social, and economic justice.
Belonging: We believe that belonging is essential to building strong communities and a healthy democracy.
Humanity: We believe that everyone is connected by our shared humanity.
Courage: We believe that taking risks is imperative to achieve a just and equitable society.
Solidarity: We are united with other movements and communities in the pursuit of civil and human rights.
The GCIR staff comes from all walks of life, many of us with immigrant and refugee backgrounds and some of us with non-traditional career paths. We have an office in the San Francisco Bay Area and remote staff in New York and Washington State. GCIR members are local, state, regional, and national foundations who transcend issue area, geographic region, and ideological categorization. For more information, visit www.gcir.org.
