Event description

Description

Where can my dollars do the most good? What is the appropriate role of financially-resourced allies in social movements? From impact investing to reparations, join us for a lively discussion on how our own giving can support progressive social change. We are excited to welcome an all-star panel - expect to have your assumptions challenged and your perspective expanded!

After the panel discussion, join a facilitated, small group discussion to dig deeper into a question or topic from the evening. You will also have the opportunity to learn about local grassroots organizations and give directly to them during the event. Whether you are an avid philanthropist or about to make your first donation, we are excited to inspire you to give boldly, for justice.

Panelists:

We will explore topics including:

  • How to take the first step in individual philanthropy
  • The tradeoffs of impact investing vs direct giving
  • Re-defining the impact metrics of your giving
  • How to Find (or Create) a Giving Community
  • Reparations: An Introductory Exploration

About the Organizers

YCore catalyzes the next generation of social impact by equipping young professionals with the tools to impact their community now and for the rest of their lives. In our four-month, after-work program, young professionals build capacity for local nonprofits while also gaining the knowledge and experience to become better volunteers, donors and community advocates. In the past three years, we've mobilized over 150 young professionals who have given 5,000 hours worth over $1M to 23 community-based nonprofits in the Bay Area.

Blue Heart mobilizes Bay Area tech young professionals (and the companies they work for) to support underfunded, grassroots organizations building the political power of low-income communities and communities of color. Join our member network at www.blueheartaction.org
