Social Justice Philanthropy in Tough Times:
Strategic Impact Through Collaboration, Capacity and Alliances
Every significant social justice issue we care about is playing itself out in a charged political moment of “states rights,” major Supreme Court rulings, a sluggish economy, assaults on civil liberties and Democratic values, changing tax codes, and election year rhetoric. Welcome to the new normal for foundations.
It’s time to take stock of social justice philanthropy and look to the future for effective strategies, inspiration and hope.
Join Public Interest Projects September 27 and 28 in NY (location to be determined) as it hosts “Social Justice Philanthropy in Tough Times: Strategic Impact Through Collaboration, Capacity and Alliances.” This two-day learning institute will offer funders the latest intelligence on effective capacity building, alliance building and strategic communications. Special focus will be placed on the South – ground zero of a convergence of political and cultural factors presenting formidable challenges to grantees and funders. Provocative speakers will offer practical models, expert training and case studies in a high-engagement, super-interactive setting. The Institute promises rich opportunities for donor learning, brainstorming and strategizing.
“Now is a critical moment for donors who wrestle with social justice philanthropy to meet some of the best thinkers and explore partnering within and across our institutions,” said Berta Colón and Michele Lord, Public Interest Projects presidents. “This is a new era of philanthropy in which we can support innovative models of funder and advocate collaboration.”
Mark your calendars for September 27 and 28 in New York City. Details will follow. Contact Cathy Block at Public Interest Projects for more information and to sign up to attend: firstname.lastname@example.org.
