Classism, sizeism; ableism; there is no shortage of social-isms. However, there are many other social "-isms" that plague our society and interfere with the everyday lives of many people.

This three session series offered in English & Spanish will provide a safe space to further explore:

  1. what it means to show up for others
  2. how to recover when you inevitably say the wrong thing
  3. how nonprofit philanthropy still needs work & what we can do about it
  4. the difference between allyship & solidarity

We know that this can be a sensitive area for some, so we are bringing in a panel of experts to ground us as we move through this series and provide attendees with the tools, wording and practices to allow you to show up for yourself and others.

We strive to co-create spaces of meaningful connection and belonging (these workshops are not webinars). We encourage and model frequent screen and body breaks. We believe collective learning leads to the most innovative and effective outcomes.

These virtual sessions will take place over Zoom.

We provide a link to our resource folder and slide deck draft 24 hours before the session as well as enable live transcription and closed caption during the live Zoom session. Our sessions are recorded (absent any technical difficulties) and can be accessed on our website a few days after the event.

Seats are limited and reserved on a first-come first-served basis.

Community Centric Fundraising: From Exploration to Action

We love our community and live to serve it. Yet our fundraising practices often perpetuate some of the injustices we wish to end. What would be possible if our fundraising centered the communities we serve? 

In this session we’ll discuss the Community-Centric Fundraising movement and its principles. Together we’ll dive more deeply into interpersonal exploration of what CCF can look like in practice, exploring the ways in which we can step into and attempt to shift the power dynamics in service to the communities we serve.

Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) was founded in Seattle and has been growing into a global movement (87 cities around the world!) with thousands of people engaging in new ways of thinking about our work. Join us for this interactive session with Michelle Shireen Muri, co-founder of the Council for Community-Centric Fundraising, and host of The Ethical Rainmaker podcast, to learn:

  • What? Deepen knowledge about what community-centric fundraising is;
  • So What? Reflect and and connect with colleagues around how CCF principles could make a difference for you and your community;
  • Now What? Consider and explore next steps in moving towards equity in fundraising by taking one principle and moving it into action. Leave inspired and equipped to create next steps around your engagement with CCF principles.

Participants will leave with:

  1. An understanding of Community-Centric Fundraising
  2. An action plan to educate the team on CCF principles & implementation opportunities
  3. Having had an opportunity to deepen relationships with one another
