The CCF Rewind

There’s lots of new stuff going on in this Rewind, so please do power through and read through to the end. We have an event coming up on Jan. 14 as well as a desire to hear from you and get a pulse on how CCF Principles are being realized in your work and organizations. Please tell us how things are going!

To start off with, here are some awesome things to read.

 

READ: “The lies year-end fundraising told you (and 5 ways to care for yourself this time of year)!
By April Walker, nonprofit executive leader

It’s so common for most of us to be mega-stressed at this time of year because of year-end fundraising efforts.

April asks: Why does it have to be like this?

April also shares that it doesn’t have to be like this. Her essay is great because it gives us really compelling arguments to — for real — give ourselves a break! She reminds us that we’re almost to the finish line and we pulled off some truly amazing feats during a historical year of ups and mostly downs. We deserve pats on the back!

 

READ: “7 must-do activities in order to actualize a practice centered around community-centric fundraising
By Rachel D’Souza-Siebert, Founder + Principal, Gladiator Consulting

Rachel is one of the growing number of folx who have taken CCF Principles and has actualized it in her work as a consultant. She has proof that community-centered fundraising can work.

Rachel’s essay details 7 activities that we all need to go through in order to create work spaces that are centered not only around community-centric fundraising, but also around communities of color, social justice, racial equity, healing, learning, and so much more. Read it!

Talk to us about your progress!

Let us know how the CCF movement has affected you, your organization, or your work! Since the launch in July, we’ve been hearing stories of how folks have been changing the way they think about or do fundraising. Maybe your org stopped listing donors by donation amount in the annual report. Maybe you are highlighting the work of other organizations. We’d love to hear about it! Please fill out this form by Dec 31.

FYI, we may share your comments, attributed to you, in a future Rewind or on social media.
