Year in Review 2017
The power of our community is undeniable when we look at the confidence we found and the change we accomplished while working together in 2017.
If we want to go far, go together. That’s been a GEO community core value since we first came together in 1998. And it’s never been truer or more relevant to our success as grantmakers than it is today.
2017 was a year of unprecedented uncertainty for all of us in our community. We saw harmful policies multiply. We saw inequalities in a new, more pronounced light. We encountered new obstacles as we embarked on more complex, cultural changes to grantmaking practice. And yet, we persevered together once again and turned 2017 into a year of unprecedented opportunities.
