EPIP Director of Network Resources Adriana Loson-Ceballos shares some ways that fundraisers are thinking differently about resource mobilization that parallel the move towards equity in the philanthropic sector:
- Community-Centric Fundraising is a fundraising model grounded in equity that prioritizes mobilizing resources for the community as a whole over individual organizations.
- Decolonizing Fundraising works to dismantle inequities built into the fabric and structure of fundraising.
- Giving Circles provide a democratic, community-centered approach to philanthropy.
- Initiatives like The Rooted Collaborative and Women of Color in Fundraising & Philanthropy bring together BIPOC leaders working on these and other aspects of resource mobilization.
And we continue to look at the ways philanthropy intersects with racial justice in its giving practices and internal policies:
- In Corporate Philanthropy's Racial Reckoning, Northern California Grantmakers President and CEO Dwayne S. Marsh shares lessons learned from NCG’s Corporate Philanthropy Institute about how corporate philanthropy can meaningfully advance racial equity.
- Ray Holgado details his experiences dealing with the disconnect between public racial justice commitments and biased internal practices in Performative Philanthropy and the Cost of Silence, published in NCRP’s November issue of Responsive Philanthropy.
