Event Details

#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

12:00pm  registration

 1:00pm   interactive program (including the Controller's keynote)

 4:00pm   reception

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.
Featuring provocative presentations and interactive discussions led by top innovators and leaders from cutting-edge philanthropies and nonprofits:
  • Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin
  • Devorah Brous, founder & Executive Director, Netiya
  • Shane Goldsmith, President & CEO, Liberty Hill Foundation
  • Nancy Harris, Executive Director, Holman Community Development Corporation
  • Hyepin Im, President, Korean Churches for Community Development
  • Shawn Landres, co-founder & CEO, Jumpstart Labs
  • Allison Lee, Executive Director - Los Angeles, American Jewish World Service

  • Javier Stauring, Director, Healing Justice Coalition
  • Paul Vandeventer, President & CEO, Community Partners

Faith+GivingTuesday+SocialGood also will mark the Los Angeles debut of Connected to Give: Faith Communities, a ground-breaking new report from Jumpstart, in cooperation with Indiana University and GBA Strategies. The report, launching on November 25, will highlight the multidimensional nature of religion and giving in America. It also will reveal the influential roles that donors' religious and spiritual orientations play in household giving to all types of organizations.
