The Donor Journeys Initiative kicked-off in January 2019 at the 5th biennial National Summit on Family Philanthropy: Our Donor Journeys and Why They Matter.
Hosted by the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy, the Summit featured three plenary panel discussions with donors whose learning and giving has been shaped by their personal experiences and family giving culture. One year later, the Johnson Center is delighted to share Summit Replay, a series of videos featuring the complete plenary discussions, available to view online for free.
Many rising “next gen” donors have a deep passion for social justice, and as a result, they face new kinds of learning challenges (and opportunities) as they develop their philanthropic identities. Next Gen Social Justice Journeys, the day’s final plenary, featured a conversation with Valaida Fullwood, New Generation of African American Philanthropists; Kim Kaupe, Andrus Family Fund; David Roswell, Roswell Foundation; and A. Sparks, Masto Foundation. Together, they discussed how they’re working to address systemic issues, confront power and privilege, and work closely with historically marginalized communities.
