#GivingTuesday and +SocialGood are coming to Los Angeles and a livestream near you!
Do you know how much of American household giving goes to and through organizations with religious ties? A third? Half? More? Less?
Come to Faith+GivingTuesday+SocialGood to find out - and explore what it means.
Keynote speaker just confirmed:
Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin
1:00pm interactive program (including the Controller's keynote)
Brought to you by Jumpstart Labs, the philanthropic research & design lab behind Connected to Give, Faith+GivingTuesday+SocialGood will highlight the vital role that faith communities play in advancing the common good through philanthropy.
We'll take the conversation a step beyond:
- ...beyond isolation: for most Americans, while faith can bring people together, faith-based organizations working for the common good tend largely to operate within their own community contexts. Join us to help close the communications gaps not only between religiously-identified organizations and the broader third sector, but also between secular organizations and their religiously committed stakeholders.
- ...beyond congregations: Find out just how much charitable funding for social good flows through organizations with religious ties. We will celebrate and amplify that important work, while highlighting the foundational role that strong, socially engaged congregations play in vibrant communities.
- ...beyond exclusions: too often, faith-based social innovators are kept from the larger conversation about social entrepreneurship—from fellowship competitions to corporate sponsorships to other important avenues of support—because they fear an incompatible agenda. It's time to explore not why and how faith-based innovators should have a seat at the table.
