Fundraising alone can do a lot for an organization, but for grassroots social justice groups it is even more meaningful when it connects and reflects the values and mission of the organization and communities we work in. This workshop frames fundraising as an interconnected part of community organizing and will share models of member-led fundraising that illustrate principles of community organizing, participation, empowerment, and anti-oppression. It will also provide participants practical tools to create opportunities within their organizations for member-driven fundraising. We will explore how we are or could approach fundraising from a leadership development perspective to help achieve our political goals and raise the resources we need.
