Funders that Fundraise Meeting

As 'funders that fundraise' we aim to amplify the impact that our organizations have in our communities by partnering with donors who have aligned goals. This unique strategy brings nuanced challenges and opportunities that deserve unpacking and examination by a peer-group.

We invite you to join and contribute to a discussion among 'funders that fundraise' peers to dig into questions like:
  • What barriers are most common as you develop relationships with donors?
  • How do you get your message out about the unique role of funders that fundraise?
  • What do your current collaborations look like?
  • How can collaboration address those objections and create deeper donor relationships?
  • How can collaboration lead to more equitable distribution of philanthropic capital?
In this one-hour session we will hold space to share experiences (what worked and what hasn't), ask questions, and share big ideas. The goal is to create connections for ongoing conversation and potentially new partnerships that lead to more collective good for all.

This is the second meeting convened by Philanthropy MA for funders that fundraise. The group emerged based on interest expressed in early 2023. A first meeting, in June 2023, was met with enthusiasm and a desire to gather twice yearly. Advisors to the group are Christine Dixon (Someone Else's Child), Stacey Landry (Essex County Community Foundation), and Amy Silberstein (Brookline Community Foundation).
