Common Good VT is pleased to share this webinar hosted by Minnesota Council of Nonprofits at a discounted rate. Please email [email protected] with questions about the event. 

Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) is a grassroots movement that seeks to move philanthropy and fundraising forward in a way that centers racial and economic justice. CCF, and its 10 Principles, were introduced to the nonprofit world by a collective of nonprofit fundraisers of color in 2018. You’ve probably heard of the concept, but as a young(ish) movement, many in the nonprofit sector are still unsure how to implement CCF in their own practice.

This one-day training of four sessions is designed to support nonprofit fundraisers in better understanding the Community-Centric Fundraising movement, its Principles, and how to both incorporate CCF into their work and help advance the effort to further fundraising practices that are grounded in race, equity, and social justice.

Participants of this Spotlight will:

  • Learn about the philosophy and principles of CCF
  • Examine the inequitable history of philanthropy, and possibilities for the future
  • Explore how to move fundraising practices forward to focus on social justice
  • Hear from practitioners who have applied CCF at their organization
  • Gain knowledge and strategies they will be able to implement in their own work

Spotlights are day-long virtual trainings, offering four to five 60-minute sessions, each exploring a different aspect of a specific topic. Each session will be led by experienced nonprofit leaders and subject-matter experts. Spotlights are designed to offer practical information that can be applied immediately along with larger-picture questions and possibilities to consider for the long-term.
