We love our community. Yet our fundraising practices often perpetuate some of the injustices we wish to end. What would be possible if our fundraising was community-centric? What do you find interesting about CCF? What are you resistant to? What do you want to learn more about?
Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) was founded in South Seattle and has been growing into a global movement (76 cities around the world!) with thousands of people engaging in new ways of thinking about our work. Join us this interactive session with Michelle Shireen Muri, co-chair of the Council for Community-Centric Fundraising, to learn:
● What? Learn about what community-centric fundraising is
● So What? Reflect and dialogue about how CCF principles could make a difference for you and your community
● Now What? Leave inspired and equipped to create next steps around your engagement with CCF principles
And to connect with nonprofit leaders in your community! This session is part of the Igniting Philanthropy series.
