The CCF Rewind

We’ve got some juicy stuff for you to read. We got something to help you with your CCF talking points in convos with skeptics — and we also got something that might make your jaw drop

READ: That time an ‘equity office’ made me grasp how mandatory DEI training harms the most oppressed
By Krystal Kavita Jagoo

Be forewarned: Your jaw is going to drop (like ours did) when you read Krystal’s essay. It’s one of those things where we were initially stunned at the story and then retroactively, we weren’t surprised at all. Because this kind stuff happens all the time to people of color. 

Krystal’s essay is about how she was subjected to mandatory DEI training, the content of which was led and championed by her white colleagues. Her essay is also about how that training was full of racial microaggressions and triggers and pretty much only served to reinforce complacency in the workplace. 

It’s such a frustrating but common occurrence, and we are so grateful Krystal has the guts to be so honest. Read this and drop her some words of encouragement!

READ: The fact-based fallacy of accountability to donors
By Hildy Gottlieb

Oh snap, Hildy wrote a CCF essay! Hildy is one of the many folx whose work has significantly influenced CCF, and we’re so excited about this latest piece from her. 

Oftentimes, when we talk about community-centric fundraising as a concept, we often default to explaining it through an ethical lens and its place within antiracism and social justice work — which is legit and a really awesome aspect of CCF. 

But y’all, as Hildy articulates in her essay, it’s not just about doing the right thing. It’s also about what makes sense. And she asserts that the concept of accountability to donors is factually illogical. Read her real-talking.
