We know that social distancing can be hard, especially for those who enjoy being in community with each other.
We encourage everyone to practice self-care and take steps to maintain your physical, mental and emotional well-being. We are also finding new ways to keep this community connected online. We are excited to bring you this Virtual REALITY portal to house all upcoming REALITY alumni-led virtual gatherings, meaningful resources and initiatives from our grantees and partners, and access to COVID-19 Response Micro Grants.
We are so inspired by all the amazing content you are creating to lift people up during these difficult times. Please email Melanie Weintraub with any upcoming events you’re hosting, content you’re creating or initiatives you’re spearheading.
REALITY Racial Equity Micro Grants
- We are proud of the work many REALITY Community members are doing to center racial equity, and these micro grants are intended to help you take purposeful action toward engaging more people and organizations in this work. While these micro grants will not address the full extent of the challenge we face in dismantling systemic racism, they are intended to support REALITY alumni efforts to address racism and inequity in their communities. If you have questions after reviewing the webpage and FAQs, please contact Jenny Feuer.
- Skills for Impact
- Our partners at Repair the World have launched Skills for Impact, an accessible way for you to connect with nonprofits virtually and help meet urgent community needs. Through the platform, you can find virtual volunteer opportunities to support those working on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. By signing up for a project, or even just hopping on the phone to give advice to a nonprofit in need, you can donate your time and talent to support impactful service organizations doing critical work during this time.
