Privilege for Sale: Fundraising w/ a Social Justice Mindset

In today's world of change and diversity, there is a need to be more sensitive about the inequities of racism as it relates to philanthropy. Most fundraisers target a certain class of donors. But in the last 20 years many organizations have shifted away from building only a large base of funders made up of wealthy foundations from the “privileged class" to a mix of donors that include a “social justice mindset." Fundraising is a key part of the struggle for social justice which includes the work of organizing, educating, advocating, and providing human “inclusive” services. The most successful social change organizations share their vision, and work with as many people as possible; collective action enables people to achieve results through building equal and mutually-supportive relationships that move the organization forward in a radically different spirit, one of potential “joy and happiness." This interactive workshop explores personal and professional “privilege,” challenging participants to look inward at the cost of privilege in their efforts to raise funding while being more aware of social injustices.


1. Participants will learn how their personal perspective, life situation, etc. influence the types of choices/decisions they make when engaged in fundraising activities.

2.- Participants will learn to recognize what role "privilege" plays in fundraising ideas, the things we take for granted in a legal, social, and economical construct and how to adopt a mindset of inclusivity when approaching funders.
