Community-Centric Fundraising is a fundraising model that is grounded in equity and social justice. We prioritize the entire community over individual organizations, foster a sense of belonging and interdependence, present our work not as individual transactions but holistically, and encourage mutual support between nonprofits.

EQUITABLE FUNDRAISING

CENTERED AROUND COMMUNITY

We need a fundraising model in which we respect donors and build strong relationships with them, but one that they are not the center of. The community we serve and benefit from must be centered.

MOVEMENT BUILDING

We envision a sector that believes in the principles of Community-Centric Fundraising, that uses these fundraising principles and practices to build the power and voice of communities of color.

EVER-EVOLVING

The CCF principles and sample actions are iterative and will change and evolve as we have more conversations, including, likely, some more healthy arguments.

THE 10 PRINCIPLES

These ever-evolving core principles have been developed from conversations with so many fundraisers of color over the the past few years. The 10 Principles are how we aspire to transform fundraising and philanthropy, so that they are co-grounded in racial and economic justice.
