Funding our Movements for Social Change
October 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
Our movements need power to bring about significant, lasting, deep social change. One way we can increase our power is to increase our funding, so we can carry out the programs, campaigns, projects, and events we plan and lead in our communities. Experienced fundraiser and social change activist Leti Bueno will talk in specific terms about funding social change work. This discussion will include best practices, idea sharing, and fundraising pitfalls to avoid. We will also take a look at the importance of inspirational storytelling, healthy partnerships in philanthropy, and donor relationship building. Bring your experiences, questions, and even reservations and fears about fundraising to this class – Leti will welcome you and all you want to share!
