Day five of the Divest/Invest challenge series! Today I’m looking with some depth at donating, philanthropy, and giving money with the help of my smart friend who works in philanthropy and donor outreach, Nicole Myles:
Some gems from our conversation include insights like:
“Poor and working class people are already philanthropists – we give each other money all the time.
The most impacted hold the most strategy.
Giving circles are a way to organize; you can autonomously create them to help, for example, create a community rent fund OR use them institutionally in tiers to put decision-making power into the hands of people who are most affected, not just the largest donors.”
You can get started with a free course on bank divesting, and I’m encouraging folks to take at least three actions over the challenges’ 10 days. Share your progress on social media using #HackingCapitalism to win!
