Community-Centric fundraising is a fundraising model that is grounded in equity and social justice. The seeds for this widened scope in fundraising were planted in 2015 by Vu Le, a Seattle-area nonprofit leader who wanted to dismantle the balance of power that donors held in philanthropy. Today, CCF operates with 10 guiding principles that encourage us to maintain transparency, foster a sense of belonging, be mutually supportive and view the work of social justice as transformational – not transactional.
