Our 2020 Keynote Speaker is Edgar Villanueva!

AFP Advancement Northwest is thrilled to announce Edgar Villanueva, author of Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance, as our keynote speaker for the 2020 Annual Conference: Building Leaders Who Fundraise.

Edgar Villanueva is a globally-recognized author and expert on philanthropy whose book Decolonizing Wealth offers compelling alternatives to the dynamics of colonization in the philanthropic and social finance sectors. Using his own personal experiences as a Native American grant maker and foundation executive—along with field data and dozens of funder interviews—Villanueva reveals the racial and colonialist dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance, including banks, investment funds, and aid organizations.

Advancement Northwest is committed to promoting the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in our association and across the nonprofit sector. We believe our members must be informed allies and accomplices so that we can build a more equitable professional fundraising culture and industry. We also believe fundraisers can empower our colleagues and our donors to embrace and insist upon centering equity in our individual organizations.
