    Stacks on Deck; Black Fundraising and Philanthropy

    in Culture

    For many years we have discussed the effects of widespread capitalism as a root cause of the current conditions of black folks in America. From chattel slavery to the institutions that were built and created as a result of free capital. With black buying power reaching over $1 trillion dollars, it’s time that we reexamine capitalism through the lenses of fundraising/philanthropy for ourselves to see the institutions and impact that will change our conditions.  By pooling our dollars together, fundraising for our causes, we can change the way that we’re viewed and the physical environments that we dwell in. Solution based radio!

    What's In A Name or Word for Fundraising

    in Management

    It's Aardvark Friday and DocTG invites listeners to understand the importance of how words are used in fundraising.  The nonprofit sector is laden with words that seem to be in the state of "lack" -- Doctor Gordon encourages 501c3's to use more powerful words to express who they are and what they do.  In doing so, donors and volunteers will be more apt to participate in your cause.  Doctor Gordon challenges each organization to begin finding a new way of describing the work they do vs what they don't do. In the not for profit industry this would mean changing how one even identifies the industry as a social profit instead of a non profit.  Let's speak into existence who we are and what we bring forth.
