Community-Centric Fundraising

Virtual Event – Friday, March 31st 11:00 am

Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) is a movement that embeds equity and social justice in fundraising. Grounded in 10 principles, CCF urges fundraisers to critically examine every donor-centric philosophy they’ve been taught, engage in transparent conversations, and fundraise in ways that reduce harm. How does an organization meaningfully reflect the values of CCF in a time of scarcity and uncertainty? Since 2020, Maria has been working to embrace a community-centric model against the backdrop of a pandemic, changes in senior leadership, and the unprecedented end of highly successful fundraising events. In this session, Maria will go over how you too can approach CCF by auditing your fundraising and storytelling.
