Public Newsroom: Fundraising Alternatives for Grassroots Organizations


Thursday, July 19 2018 - 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm


Build Coffee: 6100 S Blackstone Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60637

Besides traditional philanthropy, how do you raise money for grassroots organizations? How do we do the work across race and class to fundraise movements for justice?

On Thursday, July 19 from 6-8pm at Build Coffee (6100 S. Blackstone Ave), Crossroads Fund will be presenting on creating alternatives to funding movement work outside traditional philanthropy at City Bureau's weekly Public Newsroom series.

We will lead participants through a series of activities to begin to answer those questions. We'll kick off the evening by breaking down strategies for grassroots funding. Attendees will then use those skills to practice making in-person asks. Feel free to bring your own funding initiatives for feedback!
