Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees is a Sonoma County, California nonprofit that helps immigrants settle into new communities. After they saw themselves on our list of nonprofits using Drupal, they asked us to add some new functionality to their site, including a home page slideshow and new design elements.
More on GCIR in their own words:
GCIR seeks to influence the philanthropic field to advance the contributions and address the needs of the world’s growing and increasingly diverse immigrant and refugee populations. Our goals are to:
- Enhance philanthropy’s awareness of issues affecting immigrants and refugees and their new communities.
- Deepen the field’s understanding of how these issues are integral to community building in today’s dynamic social, economic, and political environment.
- Increase philanthropic support for both broad and immigrant/refugee-focused strategies that benefit newcomer populations and strengthen the larger society.
