Immigrant Legal Resource Center
The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) is a nonprofit resource that provides trainings, technical assistance, education materials and policy advocacy to advance immigrant rights. The mission of the ILRC is to work with and educate immigrants, community organizations, and the legal sector to build a democratic society that values diversity and the rights of all people.
Through the Community Leadership Project, ILRC has provided core operating support and capacity-building grants to minority-led, small and midsize organizations doing significant, quality work with low-income immigrant communities
Region Served: San Joaquin Valley
Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tulare counties
Total Award: $600,000
The Immigrant Legal Resource Center made seven grants, with each grantee receiving $68,500 over three years. The capacity-building grants allow organizations to identify and attend trainings, engage consultants or coaches, or select their own technical assistance provider. Examples of capacity-building support include executive coaching, strategic planning, board development and fund development. To meet an emerging need, ILRC also created a directory of capacity-building resources available to organizations in the San Joaquin Valley.
ILRC has contracted its technical assistance services to CompassPoint, an established resource to nonprofits. CompassPoint provides workshops and peer gatherings on topics of common interest to the group.
