Can Social Justice Organizations Endure? New Ideas to Get Us to “Yes”

Date: 10/3/2012
Time: 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Philanthropy New York, 79 Fifth Ave., 4th floor, NYC

In this “new normal” funding environment, how sincerely are social justice funders—no matter their specific area(s) of funding focus—willing to acknowledge the financial challenges facing their fields and their grantees?  And what new, creative approaches show the most promise for rebuilding the financial well-being of human and civil rights, anti-poverty, and environmental organizations?

Join us as three exceptional thinkers and do-ers help us return to seeing the glass for social justice funding as “half-full,” rather than the “half-empty” we’ve become used to. 


  • The unacknowledged roots of the sustainability crisis for social justice organizations
  • Innovative approaches and new investment vehicles designed to generate revenue for nonprofits
  • The critical role donors of all sizes and capacities can play in this field—especially smaller foundations and donors.
