Virtual Workshop: Fundraisers of Color - From Surviving to Thriving

09/18/2020 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM PT


This 90-minute virtual workshop is for fundraisers of color and their white allies who are ready to discuss the elephant in the room: the impact of racism on fundraising professionals of color.  

Are you thriving? Are you merely surviving? Please come ready to share what you have learned, ask questions, and connect with your fundraising peers. 

Join us for a frank conversation about our lived experiences as people of color who spend a great deal of our time pursuing contributions from white high-net-worth individuals or grants from white-led institutions.  Carving out a career as a nonprofit fundraiser of color is not for the faint of heart. We are committed to our missions, dedicated to securing contributed revenue for our organizations, and invested in our professional development.   Let’s learn the best ways to manage racism in our jobs and not only survive but thrive in our careers.   This is an opportunity for white allies to come into the conversation, listen, learn and ask relevant questions on how to support, recognize and uplift our peers and champion diversity and inclusion in fundraising.

This workshop is for:

  • Aspiring, new, and seasoned fundraisers of color  
  • White allies - supervisors, fundraisers, HR staff, volunteers, and colleagues
