Why Community-Centric

Fundraising Matters

How we fundraise is just as important as why we fundraise. Unfortunately though, fundraising in the nonprofit sector has traditionally upheld structures of oppression such as white supremacy and classism. Community-Centric Fundraising provides a set of principles to evolve our fundraising models to be rooted in race, equity, and social justice.

Join us in conversation with Quinteto Latino to learn how you can implement community-centric fundraising at your organization.

Presented by Vinney Arora, Founder, The Arora Collective; Armando Castellano, Founder and Artistic Director, Quinteto Latino; and Andrea Temkin, Founder and CEO, Transition Solutions Group
