AFP Webinar: Joining You With Us: Community-Centric Fundraising
In recent years, a BIPOC-led group of fundraisers in Seattle established Community-Centric Fundraising, a movement to advance fundraising toward social and economic justice. The movement, which has gained increased attention, invites the nonprofit sector to examine its established fundraising conventions — including the prevailing practice of ‘donor-centric fundraising’ — and aspire toward a more equitable model, as defined by 10 CCF Principles.
The goal of this session for attendees to learn more about how we can raise money while serving our community and aligning with AFP’s IDEA priorities.
