April Virtual Lunch Program: Inclusive Philanthropy

Inclusive Philanthropy – What does this mean and look like?

Why is Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access important to your organization? The presentation will focus on the intersectionality between philanthropy, nonprofit culture, and historic racism and how we need to reframe the work that we do. Nonprofits often communicate their mission in a style that can be alienating to their constituencies without realizing it. Learn how to reframe the communication style to an asset-framed style that will benefit all constituents and improve fundraising.
