The CCF Rewind
This week, we have essays from two really awesome recurring CCF content creators, April and Yolie! They both tackle the different ways in which certain norms continue to permeate through our organizations and our sectors, often impeding progress. It’s not often as simple as dreaming it and then doing it. There are always complications along the way …

Have you ever been asked what you would do if your nonprofit had unlimited resources? It’s a big question.
April explores the various nuances of this hypothetical question and talks about how the scarcity mindset that is prevalent in our sector gets proliferated and even encouraged — and how progress on this front will not manifest merely from us ‘envisioning’ abundance, but from truly exploring just how we got to where we are in the first place. Give it a read!

Yolie explains more in her essay! Read it to learn more!
