The Bay Area Justice Funders Network presents: Deepening Practices Towards Greater Equity

Webinar

What can we do to increase the amount of philanthropic resources going to AAPI communities?  What strategies could we employ within our organization, chapter and giving circles to:

  • Make accessing our resources less restrictive;
  • Center movement priorities in our grantmaking; and
  • Increase participation in our giving circles?

Join CHANGE Philanthropy and AAPIP on August 24th, as we invite the Bay Area Justice Funders Network to share wisdom from “The Choir Book: A Framework for Social Justice Philanthropy,” with participants from its Harmony Initiative, and members of their network.  Elaine Mui, Grants & Operations Manager of the General Service Foundation will share her foundation’s work to minimize the burden placed on grantees through their grantmaking processes; Alexander Saingchin, Program Director of the Common Counsel Foundation who will share some effective strategies in aligning donors with the priorities of movements; and Sara Velten, Vice President at the Latino Community Foundation will share how the deepening of relationships allowed them to grow a giving circle to more than 500 members!  This webinar will explore how to deepen philanthropic practices towards greater equity.

  • Dana Kawaoka-Chen, Bay Area Justice Funders Network
