Three Years Later, Funding Social Movements Matters More Than Ever
Two-Part Series co-sponsored by the CT Council for Philanthropy and Philanthropy New York
May 9 and June 13

During the 2020 demonstrations against anti-Black racism, every sector in the United States condemned systemic injustice and committed to implementing more equitable policies and practices within their institutions  including philanthropy.

Three years later, it remains vital for foundations to support social change movements, from emergence to building infrastructure to ensuring sustainability. Join CCP and partners for a two-part virtual, interactive series to explore social movements, the needs of movement leaders, and promising practices from funders. 

In partnership with the Building Movement Project, we will dig deep into the latest reports and toolkits (Move the Money and Funding Movement Infrastructure) for peer-to-peer reflection and hands-on practice.

What will you learn?
  • A deeper understanding of the characteristics of social movements
  • Ideas and practices that meet the needs of movement leaders
  • Approaches to overcome barriers that arise in supporting social movements
  • Resources to catalyze conversations within foundations about resourcing social movements
Who should attend?

Staff and board of CCP member organizations. What to expect: presentation followed by breakout discussion.


This is a two-part session (May 9 and June 13). We encourage you to attend both sessions. To register for Session 1 on May 9, click here.

Discussions will build on previously discussed topics and build a space for peers to share processes, learn, and practice together. The sessions will be recorded.

Registrants will receive the webinar link a day prior to each session.
