Virtual Coffee Connections: Community-Centric Fundraising Principles Part 2

Program Overview
Community-Centric Fundraising is a movement with the goal of transforming our practice of nonprofit development and philanthropy by grounding it in equity and social justice. It was founded by a group of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) fundraisers in Seattle who, in their lived experience, saw the many ways that those who work in this profession are harmed. 

In this two part discussion we're review the ten Community-Centric Fundraising Principles. Part two will go over 6-10.

  1. We treat donors as partners, and this means that we are transparent, and occasionally have difficult conversations.
  2. We foster a sense of belonging, not othering.
  3. We promote the understanding that everyone (donors, staff, funders, board members, volunteers) personally benefits from engaging in the work of social justice – it’s not just charity and compassion.
  4. We see the work of social justice as holistic and transformative, not transactional.
  5. We recognize that healing and liberation requires a commitment to economic justice.

Host: Beth Bojarski and Taryn Mullen
