Increasingly, charity and philanthropy have become part of the engine of profit and control. Huge foundations, such as the Gates Foundation, who are built on the wealth of billionaires, use grantmaking to impact policy – nationally and internationally – and produce new business and profit-making opportunities that benefit their interests.

Social Justice philanthropy contrasts with this trend and is steeped in principles that focus on root causes of injustices. It centers people who are impacted by those injustices as decision-makers, bringing increased accountability, transparency and democracy to philanthropy, and making the field more accessible and diverse.

Join us on March 13 to learn more and get involved in changing the game of philanthropy.

What is philanthrocapitalism? It is the trend of using philanthropy to achieve for-profit, business goals in addition to the presumed social good. Corporate interests become more important than the interests of communities receiving funding.

This event is FREE; Food provided.

ACCESSIBILITY INFO: the side of the building has a wheelchair accessible ramp with an accessible bathroom located on the same floor. We request that people come fragrance free. Bathrooms are all-gender.

Register at bit.ly/2BnPiO2. (Registration not required but helpful so we have enough food and can cater to your food needs.)
