West Coast Fundraising Workshop + Racial Justice Workshop

Hannah Weilbacher

We had such a successful 2015 fundraising training in NYC; it was truly a unique opportunity for Roundtable organizations to learn from and with each other about how to fundraise for our organizations. So we're bringing our workshop to the West Coast!

West Coast Fundraising + Racial Justice Workshops 
Presented by the Jewish Social Justice Roundtable for our members and allies

Day One: Fundraising Workshop
Wednesday, January 25th
9:30AM-4PM

Urban Adamah | 1151 Sixth Street, Berkeley, CA
Breakfast at 9:30, Program at 10

This is at the new Urban Adamah Farm, which we are so excited to see! It is about 2 miles away from North Berkeley Bart. Good for a  5 minute cab ride (or a 40 minute walk, 10-15 bike ride). For folks who don't want those options there is a bus line, the 72R, that runs from the 19th St. Oakland bus stop down to San Pablo and Gilman, about 4 blocks from us. 

The day-long workshop will feature Ruth Messinger, Global Ambassador for American Jewish World Service, and Stephanie Rapp, Senior Program Officer, Jewish Life and Special Projects at the Haas Fund, and other staff with decades of experience in raising money for nonprofit organizations. We will focus on stewarding and cultivating major individual donors, and how to improve organizations’ case for support.

This workshop is designed for staff of Roundtable organizations who are actively engaged in fundraising work on the West Coast, which means all experienced development staff, including Executive Directors. This workshop is not a training with outside experts - instead, this is an opportunity for peer learning across the Jewish social justice network. 

Day Two: Racial Justice Workshop with Yavilah McCoy
Thursday, January 26th

9:30AM-2PM
Urban Adamah | 1151 Sixth Street, Berkeley, CA
Breakfast at 9:30, Program at 10

As above, this is at the new Urban Adamah Farm, which we are so excited to see! It is about 2 miles away from North Berkeley Bart. Good for a  5 minute cab ride (or a 40 minute walk, 10-15 bike ride). For folks who don't want those options there is a bus line, the 72R, that runs from the 19th St. Oakland bus stop down to San Pablo and Gilman, about 4 blocks from us. 

The goals of this racial justice training are:

-  to build the capacity of Jewish social justice organizations to address racism within our organizations, in the Jewish community, and in our cities/regions
- to build relationships among Jewish social justice staff and lay leaders
