“The Money for Our Movements conference is the only space of its kind to bring together leading fundraisers to share skills and innovate on the future growth of fundraising.  My confidence as a fundraiser grows exponentially in my ability to make the asks and to build partnerships that have never existed before for resourcing Native communities. I highly recommend the investment to grow your community’s confidence and skills to be bold in taking action for the changes our communities need to thrive.”

~ Johnny Buck (Yakama/Wanapum), Native Youth Leadership Alliance Co-Founder

Are you looking to increase funding from your community to grow the work of your organization?

Would you like to see your organization’s funding stream more diversified and sustainable?

Are you working in isolation and looking for community with other social justice fundraisers?

Then THIS is the conference for YOU!

Please join us August 2-3, 2014 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD for:

  • Fundraising skills training geared toward social justice activists, featuring hands-on exercises and practical information. There will be over 70 workshops and facilitated discussions, with the most popular sessions being offered twice!
  • Concrete, real-life examples and models of organizations from the US and abroad that are creating alternatives to fundraising that is driven by foundations and/or government agencies.
  • Debates and plenaries with luminaries and up-and-coming leaders in the social justice and philanthropy sectors that will provoke participants to think outside the box.
  • Networking opportunities for people to share, come together, and build community.
