The Rise of Alternative Giving
Wednesday June 3rd, 2020
8:30 - 9:30am
While this time has created a lot of unwanted change and uncertainty in our lives to varying degrees, we have seen some things to be hopeful for such as nature's powerful self-repair and the creative and intentional ways in which humans are coming together in connection and support of one another.
Join us for an open discussion about Mutual Aid funds and other local models of de-centralized and non-institutional giving that have arisen as a direct response to the Covid-19 crisis. We'll look at The Sweet And Mutual Aid Fund, STL Mutual Aid, and others doing this important rapid-response, collaborative work in our communities, and discuss the potential lessons for traditional giving.
Are you a member or admirer of a group doing or supporting this work? Please reach out (reply to this email) and let us know about it, and come to the discussion to share! Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who could benefit from or contribute to this discussion.
Take such good care of yourselves, and we look forward to connecting virtually very soon!
