Principles of Community-Centric Fundraising & Why They Matter in the Social Impact Space


We’re in the middle of a major shift. The Community-centric Fundraising (CCF) movement is gaining traction and challenging the foundation of donor-centred fundraising that has been at the forefront for so long. But the heart of this isn’t new. Philanthropy has always been rooted in these principles. CCF grounds fundraising in race, equity, and social justice and re-positions the donor as a partner in the work, not the center of it. This way we can enter the arena of making change as members of the same team, address power dynamics, and reduce the harm that is caused on our paths to doing good. This means rethinking how we fundraise, having honest and difficult conversations, and taking exciting paths forward. This session will improve your understanding of CCF principles and provide some practical guidance on incorporating CCF values into your fundraising.

Key learnings from this session:

  • Learn about the issues with many current fundraising practices
  • Understand the principles of Community-Centric Fundraising
  • Gain guidance on implementing CCF practices into your fundraising
