We love our community and live to serve it. Yet our third sector practices often perpetuate some of the injustices we wish to end. What would be possible if our work centered the communities we serve? In this session we’ll discuss the racist roots of nonprofits and philanthropy and discuss the Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) 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 (100 cities around the world!) with thousands of people engaging in new ways of thinking about our work. Join us for this interactive session to learn:
What? Deepen knowledge about the principles of community-centrism and learn about the racist roots of nonprofits and philanthropy;
- So What? Reflect and and connect with colleagues around how we are complicit in upholding problematic systems, and how CCF principles could make a difference for you and your community;
- Now What? Consider and explore next steps in moving towards equitable practices by taking one principle and moving it into action. Leave inspired and equipped to create next steps around your equity journey.
