On the second day of 2022 MIE National Fundraising Conference, Robert C. Osborne, Jr. and Laurel McCombs of The Osborne Group presented our second plenary session: It’s Not Either/Or - Raising Money with an Anti-racist Approach.

In this session, Bob and Laurel discussed how increasing your focus on diversity and inclusion and raising money aren’t mutually exclusive. They shared how you can assess and revitalize your development program to take an anti-racist approach that results in successful fundraising and a high return on investment. In addition to providing practical advice and anti-racist actions you can take in your fundraising, they also consider the roles that culture and systems play in our fundraising. Two of the most burdensome traps that many nonprofits fall into are doing things as they’ve always been done and making assumptions. Participants will learn strategies that help you overcome these tendencies.
