Free

Burke Stansbury – Social Justice Fund

Emma Shorr, Moderator – Community Alliance for Global Justice/AGRA Watch

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.
