This free series of candid conversations features grassroots organizers, community leaders, movement builders, data scientists, and social sector innovators who will share their insights and challenge current thinking on giving during crisis, embracing radical generosity and the future of movements as a force for change. We’ll explore the role of the social sector in recovery and healing, and take a fresh look at how we organize, collaborate, and give to leave old habits behind and build a radically different future.
This series is made possible thanks to a generous gift from Craig Newmark Philanthropies.
All events will include English captions and Spanish audio interpretation. Please register to receive session recordings.
When organizations and communities come together around a shared goal, they create more creative and inclusive collaborations that can transform civil society. In this session, we spoke with leaders who are embracing new models for collaboration and coalition building. They shared how they are thinking and leading creatively to create inclusive collaborations and partnerships in an effort to unleash greater impact.Watch the Recording
Around the world in every community, giving is happening in a multitude of ways – modes of giving that while important to the nonprofit sector, to date haven’t been viewed as a relevant addition to the impact measurement conversation. Without this scope of measurement, we will never achieve a fulsome understanding of giving and its impact – ultimately robbing those very communities and people of agency.
In this session we examined the history and traditions of giving in communities, how people organize around their giving – and how they think about the impact of mutual aid and direct community care, and problems with being prescriptive with how we measure impact. We’ll dig into questions around how we engage givers that are largely left out of the ecosystem, and how we can be more mindful and inclusive of all givers and ensure equitable agency.Watch the Recording
The definition of a “community” can mean many different things but vibrant communities have many of the same characteristics. Creating a strong sense of belonging in a community requires a leader or organization to embrace values like co-ownership, collective action, peer learning, and offering a space where everyone can participate. Our panelists shared tangible examples of how they “community,” why it works and how you can nurture your community to fuel your movement and mission.Watch the Recording

Philanthropy is not the sole domain of institutions or wealthy individuals–people of all backgrounds are giving in creative ways to drive social change. Yet, these other forms of giving are often ignored, marginalized, or deprioritized by the social sector and policymakers. How We Give Now, a new book by Lucy Bernholz, examines the diverse ways that people are giving money, time, and even data to help communities and seek justice. Join Lucy, along with Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday, and Edgar Villanueva, Principal of Decolonizing Wealth Project and Liberated Capital; author, Decolonizing Wealth to explore emerging trends in giving and learn how our response to current crises is reshaping the future of philanthropy through collective action, mutualism, and reciprocity.Watch the Recording
