How to dismantle and share power and privilege in community foundations

by Hannah Munshi |

Power and privilege are loaded terms that we can tend to shy away from when it comes to securing and stewarding gifts from donors. As a community foundation leader, partner or nonprofit professional, what is your role in dismantling power and privilege dynamics in community foundations? In this session we will share concepts and practice the skills needed to:
share power, hold space and and give up power; ensure equity in addressing community needs through donor education and fundraising; develop opportunities for community leaders with diverse lived experience and intersectional identities to access greater power and influence within your community foundation and with donors; and create and uphold organizational culture and practices that ensure donor and staff relationships are grounded in equity and anti-oppression.
