People-Powered Movements: Individual Donor Programs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Within the current funding and political climate, many groups are struggling to fund and resource their work in a sustainable way. In this session, we will look at the history and principles of grassroots fundraising within social justice movements and share lessons and stories of building individual donor work and programs, including a case study of a successful sustainer program. Participants will walk away with theory, skills, strategies and next steps for building sustainable individual donor work.
