The CCF Rewind

This week, we have a lot of content for you to absorb, as well as a reminder for you to apply to be on our CCF Global Council!

Let’s get into it!:


READ: “What to do when we f*ck up — because we will — a lot
By Rebekah Giacomantonio

When we feel hurt because of someone’s actions or words, we often just want the person to hurt us to acknowledge the impact they had and to say they are sorry. However, as Rebekah points out in her essay, making amends isn’t always so clear-cut and easy. Repair work, especially from folks with privilege, is often so hard to do — why?

Rebekah tackles this in her awesome essay. Read it (and get annoyed by Bryce!)

WATCH: Fundraising on TV shows, accurate or nah? The Ethical Rainmaker InstaLive with Nia Wassink
By Michelle Shireen Muri, CCF co-chair

Nia is the co-host of The Nonprofit Reframe Podcast, and in a recent InstaLive, she and Michelle chatted about how fundraising is portrayed in popular media. From medical dramas like The Knick and The Good Doctor, to comedies like The Office and Parks and Rec, fundraising and fundraisers show up in a lot of the media we love. Sometimes these portrayals are totally relatable, and other times they’re absolutely absurd.
