Powerful Giving Isn’t Always Big Giving
Bold Conversation with Jeff Zinsmeyer and Jessie Spector

Ever feel frustrated that you don’t have enough money to create the changes you want to see in the world? Join two of our amazing bold givers, Jeff Zinsmeyer and Jessie Spector, who have both leveraged their financial resources to achieve big impacts advancing a social justice agenda. Hear about how to leverage progressive philanthropy to promote equity and human wellbeing and the power of small gifts to make big change.

As founder of the Discount Foundation, a small foundation focused on supporting winnable campaigns around economic opportunity for the poor, Jeff leverages his foundation’s grants and access to other funders and leaders. Discount’s focus is on eliminating economic inequalities by assisting people who lack wealth and power in improving their lives and making the “American Dream” a reality for all. They’ve played a critical role in building and securing support for the Living Wage movement and continue to focus on workplace organizing as a crucial avenue for low-wage workers to achieve greater economic justice.

As Executive Director of Resource Generation, Jessie uses the privilege of a wealthy upbringing to organize a multi-racial constituency of young people with wealth and class privilege who are committed to organizing toward the equitable distribution of land, wealth, and power. She is also moving her own resources through several cross-class models of wealth redistribution including the Criminal Justice Initiative, a circle of donors and activists who use consensus to fund the transformation of the criminal justice system.

Get inspired by Jeff & Jessie’s experiences and gain insights and inspiration about what you can do to invest in big change, regardless of how much you have to give. As Jeff says, “Don’t discount what you can do!”
