This 2-hour virtual workshop is for fundraisers of color who are ready to discuss the elephant in the room: the impact of racism on fundraising professionals of color.  

Are you thriving? Are you merely surviving? Please come ready to share what you have learned, ask questionsand connect with your fundraising peers. 

Join us for a frank conversation about our lived experiences as people of color who spend a great deal of our time pursuing contributions from white high-net-worth individuals or grants from white-led institutions.  Carving out a career as a nonprofit fundraiser of color is not for the faint of heart. We are committed to our missions, dedicated to securing contributed revenue for our organizations, and invested in our professional development.  

Let’s learn the best ways to manage racism in our jobs and not only survive but thrive in our careers. 

This virtual workshop will take place on Friday, July 24 at 2:00-4:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. PT.

This workshop is for:
Aspiring, new, and seasoned fundraisers of color  
White allies - supervisors, fundraisers, HR staff, volunteers, and colleagues
