The Principles of Community Centric Fundraising: Implications for Funders 

The Principles of Community Centric Fundraising: Implications for Funders 

Wednesday, October 04, 2023, 1:00 - 2:15 PM

Maryland Philanthropy Network is committed to helping our members learn to practice philanthropy in service of equity and justice. Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) is a movement aspiring to transform fundraising and philanthropy so that they are co-grounded in racial and economic justice. CCF invites fundraisers and funders to examine the problematic philosophies and practices we've been upholding.  

Join us to discuss the 10 principles of CCF, what they ask of funders, and how they are impacting the sector. Participants will learn about colleagues implementing some of the principles and will discuss the range of ways funders can be supportive of these principles as a way to demonstrate anti-racist values. 

Our speakers will be:  

  • Dani Faulkner, Director of Development, Parity Homes and Community Centric Fundraising Global Council Member  

  • Dannielle Sturgeon, Director of Development, Baltimore Corps

While this session is primarily geared toward funders, those who also have fundraising responsibilities will benefit from the discussion. 

This program was originally scheduled for Wednesday, May 24, 2023. This program is for members of the following philanthropy-serving organizations: with the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers, Grantmakers of Western Pennsylvania, Maryland Philanthropy Network, North Carolina Network of Grantmakers, NY Funders Alliance, Philanthropy West Virginia, and Wisconsin Philanthropy Network.
