The National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA) is elated to have been named among the beneficiaries of MacKenzie Scott’s latest round of philanthropic giving. We commend Ms. Scott for including in this round, groups who work tirelessly on behalf of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers and are proud to be among these stellar organizations. This generous gift represents the single largest donation in NPNA’s history and will be transformative as the organization continues our work to promote equity, inclusion, and belonging for immigrant and refugee communities across the country. 

Ms. Scott’s commitment to equity and inclusion is truly inspiring, and sets NPNA on a new course to scale our work to continue to drive powerful campaigns and programs to champion democracy and the full inclusion of immigrant communities and galvanize state, local and national stakeholders to promote a comprehensive approach to immigrant inclusion through advocacy, collaboration, and services.

“In an era where democracy is so very fragile, where division threatens our social cohesion, and where immigrant and refugee issues continue to be some of the most underfunded work in the sector, NPNA will be able to deepen and amplify our work to advance immigrant inclusion policy, work to eliminate barriers to citizenship and civic participation, and expand our programming and capacity building initiatives to amplify our impact as a powerful coalition working on behalf of the millions of New Americans that call this country home.” said Nicole Melaku, NPNA executive director

We are tremendously grateful for Ms. Scott’s generous gift andNPNA is more committed than ever to continue our work to realize our vision of full immigrant and refugee inclusion.
