We have a multimedia rewind for you this week — stuff for your eyes, ears, brains, and hearts created by some familiar CCF friends.
CCF Rewind: Broadening your horizons doesn’t have to be hard + making metrics work for your DEI plan
Welcome to another edition of the CCF Rewind. This week, we have essays from two returning CCF contributors. Gen Z student Isabella Lock gives us tips on how her politically and socially conscious generation manages to continue staying involved with progressive movements and pushing for radical change. And consulting prospect researcher Christine Bariahtaris is back with a follow-up to her piece about why diversity plans fail. This new essay is all about working with meaningful metrics.
CCF Rewind: Why we need to be LESS professional + We need to use our talents outside of the day job!
Welcome to another edition of the CCF Rewind. This week, we have essays that are two different flavors of mad inspiring. One is about how a bunch of these ideas we’ve been sold about ‘professionalism’ have all been a lie (a lie!). The other is about how we as fundraisers are powerful beings and the work we do outside of our day jobs can make a huge difference in building a more just world.
CCF Rewind: The real consequences BIPOCs bear when speaking out against racism + how philanthropy polices the clothes we wear
This week, we have two really powerful essays to share with you — both have made us pause, to both think and to dwell in some uncomfortable areas. We truly commend the guts and courage of both Melia and Carlos for continuing to speak their truths. We hope you take inspiration from them and toss them some words of encouragement today.
CCF Rewind: Why today is the day to get more uncomfortable! + How a nonprofit stopped ignoring its racism problem and started tackling it head-on
Happy Monday. This week, we have two really juicy essays for you to read as well as a way for you to register for our next BIPOC Town Hall!
CCF Rewind: Did you get a cost of living increase? You better have! + 5 anti-ableist practices any org can adopt right now!
We are still feeling pretty high from last week’s CCF Town Hall for BIPOCs! How about you! Be sure to save the date (Feb. 11) for the next one. Registration link is coming soon! Stay tuned.
CCF Rewind: How to tell stories ethically + we’ve got to stop pretending program workers don’t exist!
We hope you are doing well. We’re back to work at CCF, and this week, we bring you two badass essays themed around programming.
Hope you have some time off to relax and be with loved ones. We’re taking it easy this week ourselves — there’s no new content, but there is an end-of-year roundup. We’ve published so much this year (more than 50 pieces!) and we wanted to take this opportunity to bask in it all.
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!
CCF Rewind: Christian foundations and how they maintain power + 4 reasons why your diversity plan isn’t working
As we start to close out 2020, we at CCF just want to say how much we appreciate all of our content creators. With every new piece that comes through our inbox, we are just shocked and humbled by the wisdom, insight, vulnerability, and bravery that each one of CCF’s content creators puts on display.
