  • From Transactional to Transformational: What you need to know about Community-Centric Fundraising

    Jun 20, 08:30 AM - 11:00 AM (ET)

    Educational Session, Q&A, Workshop

    Join us for an enriching and informative fundraising-focused educational session followed by a workshop designed to elevate your fundraising game. Whether you're a seasoned fundraiser or just starting, this event promises valuable insights and practical strategies to make your fundraising efforts more effective.

    Connect and learn from other fundraising professionals in your community.

    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.
