Community-Centric Fundraising

Why does BrightSpark follow a Community Centric Fundraising model?

Community Centric Fundraising (CCF) is an approach to fundraising developed in the Seattle area by community leaders of color, with the purpose of re-shaping fundraising and the non-profit field into one that is based in community and rooted in social justice. This means that organizations who follow this model are committed to prioritizing the needs of the community over their own initiatives; addressing racism in prejudice within traditional fundraising and outreach efforts; and valuing every contribution (whether it is a financial donation, in-kind donation, or time spent volunteering, etc) equitably.
