Nonprofits host many of the same fundraisers time after time, year after year. But, these are all for good reason! Such efforts contribute towards the advancement of your organization’s mission as you strive to better your community. No one is shaming you for that! But, there are also several other factors that make up your fundraising strategy you may not be considering.
For example, have you considered (or are familiar with) Community-Centric Fundraising? Community-Centric Fundraising is a fundraising model that is grounded in equity and social justice. It believes in prioritizing the entire community over individual organizations, fostering a sense of belonging and interdependence, presenting work not as individual transactions but holistically, and encouraging mutual support between nonprofits.
It’s a movement led by Rachel D’Souza-Siebert, who is also a passionate advocate for collaboration, racial equity and community/movement-centered fundraising as her role at Gladiator suggests.
Because of her passion and expertise, Tosha Anderson of The Charity CFO knew Rachel was the ideal guest to invite on for a chat on the recurring and informational podcast series, A Modern Nonprofit Podcast.
On this week’s episode, Tosha and Rachel discuss:
- Values that shape decisions to work with clients, or to not work with clients!
- How can nonprofits integrate community-centric fundraising into their orgs?
- Barriers when trying to bring equity into the not-for-profit space?
- Balancing between wants and needs when analyzing fundraising
- And more!
