The CCF Rewind

For those who attended CCF’s anniversary celebration last week, THANK YOU SO MUCH! We hope you had a blast because we sure did. We’ve gotten a number of requests to make a recording of the event available for those who could not attend and we’re currently working on that. Stay tuned and watch for it in next week’s Rewind! 

Gretchen, stop trying to make “change the system from within” happen. It’s not going to happen.

By Rebekah Giacomantonio, culture disruptor and community healer

Rebekah was a self-professed do-gooder who used to believe that the nonprofit system could be reformed from within — so much so that she spent much of her career trying to do just that. What she faced was just disappointment after disappointment, heartbreak after heartbreak, and worst of all — harm being further perpetuated by the good intentions of well-meaning white individuals like herself.

Once she realized what was happening — Rebekah quit. She quit her job, and she might’ve even quit the entire nonprofit sector for good. Please, read her essay to see how she came to this decision and the lessons she has learned along the way — and be sure to drop her a note if her story resonates with you.
