Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) is a global movement started by a group of fundraisers of color in Seattle and seeks to re-examine fundraising and advance equity and social justice. CCF centers the voices and lived experiences of individuals and communities most affected by systemic injustice. This Insight session will be a facilitated space and conversation to learn more about CCF, reflect on our own experiences and practices, and explore ways we can incorporate CCF into our own work. Remember, CCF is a movement, so there is no way we will cover it all in one gathering! All levels of CCF knowledge are welcome—no one has all the answers. To create a safe space where participants can share experiences candidly, this session will not be recorded.
