The Grassroots Fundraising Journal is proud to recognize the sponsors that are supporting Raising Change: A Social Justice Fundraising Conference. It is with the help of our sponsors that we are able to keep the event affordable to a broad spectrum of nonprofit board members, volunteers and staff.

Presenting Sponsors:

The Building Movement Project was conceived out of a meeting with twenty people working in small social change nonprofits from across the United States. The meeting examined the role of social change nonprofits in the larger sector, and the constraints they faced in meeting their goals. The results of these discussions led to the Building Movement project, which is designed to explore and challenge (1) the current assumptions and expectations of how US-based social change nonprofit organizations should operate and (2) their impact on building larger movements for change. www.buildingmovement.org

Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT) develops and strengthens the grassroots fundraising skills of people working for social justice as our contribution to building the movement. Because we believe movement organizations must be effective and self-sufficient, our goal is to build the capacity of progressive organizations to raise money and to increase the number of people of color in fundraising. www.grassrootsinstitute.org

Partner Organizations:

CompassPoint Nonprofit Services is a nonprofit training, consulting and research organization with offices in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Through a broad range of services, we provide nonprofits with the management tools, concepts and strategies necessary to shape change in their communities. www.compasspoint.org

The Development Executives Roundtable (DER) is an informal association of individuals – professional staff and consultants, board members and other volunteers, as well as those exploring new career possibilities who meet monthly to learn more about all aspects of fundraising.

The National Community Development Initiative seeks to build capacity for social change in communities of color and other underserved communities in a culturally-based way.  We do this by providing consulting services that support organizational development, training for consultants and community helpers, and by sharing what we learn with the field.  www.ncdinet.org
