Three Years Later, Funding Social Movements Matters More Than Ever

May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


In partnership with the Building Movement Project and Philanthropy New York, Forefront is excited to offer an upcoming two-part program for grantmakers. During the 2020 uprisings against anti-Black racism and amidst a global pandemic, every sector in the United States, including philanthropy, condemned systemic injustice and committed to implementing more equitable policies and practices within their institutions. Three years later, it remains vital for foundations to support social change movements, from emergence to infrastructure to sustainability. Join us for a two-part virtual, interactive sessions to explore social movements, the needs of movement leaders, and promising practices from funders.

In partnership with the Building Movement Project, we will dig deep into their latest reports and toolkits (Move the Money and Funding Movement Infrastructure) for peer-to-peer reflection and hands-on practice.

What will you learn?

  • A deeper understanding of the characteristics of social movements
  • Ideas and practices that meet the needs of movement leaders
  • Approaches to overcome barriers that arise in supporting social movements
  • Resources to catalyze conversations within foundations about resourcing social movements

Who should attend? All interested grantmakers interested in grantmaking roles.

What to expect: Presentation followed by breakout discussion.
