About the Webinar

Historically, philanthropy in diverse communities has gone unrecognized by mainstream philanthropic institutions. Often the assumed relationship between philanthropy and diverse communities is one of giving to people from diverse communities not giving by people from diverse communities. This webinar will review the depth and breadth of historical giving in diverse communities and traditions that impact giving. Nonprofits have to be creative and responsive to how things are done in a given community without making assumptions. Traditional definitions of philanthropy will be discussed and grassroots fundraising strategies will be identified for engaging diverse groups as donors. Participants will acquire critical awareness, skills, and systems to grow and sustain a base of diverse donors and support.
