Our embodied values
The actions woven into every step of our work
CENTER THE COMMUNITIES WE EXIST TO SERVE
We contribute our fundraising expertise to groups with deep experience in their communities to grow in ways that support their mission. We will always center the groups we work with and the communities they represent as primary.
BUILD BELOVED COMMUNITY WITH HOPE AND JOY
Hope and joy are necessary to do this work sustainably. We take strength from knowing we are shoulder-to-shoulder together as a team, supporting the frontline groups who are taking the risk and doing the work.
We can't develop new ways to resource the movement without failing. When we fail, we fail forward and figure out what's next based on what the data tells us.
We acknowledge our responsibility to confront the white supremacist legacy of philanthropy and nonprofit fundraising.
ChANGE MINDS, CHANGE SYSTEMS
We honor the awesome opportunity and responsibility we have to be part of a colossal transformation in how the movement invests in growing progressive power.
Respect personal agency
We operate with purposeful transparency that gives everyone the agency to make decisions that are in their best interest.
LEARN FROM EVERYONE
In partnership, we intentionally disrupt the expert/novice model. Lived experience is the most authentic teacher.
Demonstrate low hierarchy and high accountability
We team intentionally and support each other by honoring our communities.
