Given the economic crisis and the political moment, the challenge of mobilizing sufficient resources to make change is again at the forefront. The time is right for us to come together to discuss the political implications of funding. It is crucial that we discuss how to raise money in communities of color, immigrant communities, and low-income communities. It is for our survival that we learn and share how to integrate fundraising into organizing and other program work. At the same time, we are helping support the leadership of people of color and young people.
Four goals for this conference:
- Insert a race, class, social justice, and movement-building lens into fundraising, so that values and practice around fundraising match political goals. Insert a grassroots fundraising lens into movement-building
- Help people of color social justice activists begin and stay in fundraising
- Share the fundraising stories, examples, and case studies of social justice grassroots groups based in communities of color and low-income communities
- Inspire and support organizations to practice grassroots fundraising in a sustainable way that fosters an abundance mentality, strong relationships, community accountability, base-building, and honest conversations about money, race, and class
They have 40 workshops, 60 one-on-one consulting sessions with advanced fundraisers, several keynotes, 30 facilitated discussions, and a debate.
