“Strategizing with Black, Brown, queer and trans folks from across the country about how to creatively and justly move money to the grassroots movements who need it most was huge for us. It grounded us in a community of like-minded fundraisers who hope to move beyond the ‘foundation industrial complex,’ which is currently failing to fund our liberation.”

You and I both know, frontline communities urgently need networks of care and grassroots funding in these times.  Over 20 years ago, a small group of dedicated changemakers came together to found GIFT, instilling the spirit of collaboration in the organization’s DNA. In this spirit of collaboration, your support enables GIFT to team up with groups like Su Teatro and Third Wave Fund to convene fundraisers and resource mobilizers at the Allied Media Conference to imagine new futures for resourcing movements.

Join the movement: Frontline fundraisers and resource mobilizers are counting on you! Make your gift TODAY!

We need your help to invest in social justice fundraisers, resource mobilizers, community organizers, and radical philanthropists to convene, each year, at the Allied Media Conference, as they imagine new futures for resourcing movements.

Now more than ever, resource mobilizers need spaces like the Reimagining Movement Resource Strategies convening to imagine new possibilities, build networks of support, and ask new questions to reach solutions that will make a difference.  They need more than skills; they need connection and collaboration with each other.
