The 2020 Census: 
Ensuring a Fair and Inclusive Count
A Policy Program for Grantmakers
Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Two years from now, the 2020 Census will be in full swing. Reliable and accurate data serves as a necessary foundation for a well-functioning government, a robust civil society, and a thriving business sector in the United States. The philanthropic and nonprofit sectors also rely upon accurate census data to help identify community needs, prioritize grantmaking initiatives, and serve communities that are hard-to-count through work on issues such as poverty, health care, criminal justice reform, racial equity, education equity, and infrastructure improvement.

Gateway Center for Giving is partnering with the Funders Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), a national network of funders focused on promoting a vibrant and inclusive democracy for all, to lead a discussion about the nexus between philanthropy and the 2020 Census. During this event, former Democracy Program Manager at FCCP Keely Monroe and Leadership Team Member of the Funders Census Initiative and Program Officer at the Kansas Health Foundation Elina Alterman will be in St. Louis to discuss how the non-partisan and constitutionally required 2020 Census may help (or harm) the communities grantmakers care about for the next decade.

Participants will leave this program with:
  • An review of the design changes and resulting challenges related to the upcoming 2020 Census;
  • And understanding of the policy and operational implications for the state of Missouri if there is not a fair count on the 2020 Census; and
  • Opportunities for funder engagement to ensure that timely, accurate, and reliable socio-economic and demographic data are collected and disseminated broadly to support informed decision-making in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
