Join Clara Lind and Kristin Skaar for Exploring Community Centric Fundraising (CCF)
This fundraising movement prioritizes the entire community over individual organizations, fostering a sense of belonging and interdependence, presenting our work not as individual transactions but holistically, and encouraging mutual support between nonprofits. This conversation will be an introduction to CCF principles and attendees will be invited to brainstorm ways for their organizations to engage in this work. We will also share information about how to get further plugged into this movement in the Twin Cities.
About the Facilitators:
Clara Lind has worked throughout the Twin Cities as a fundraiser since 2017, and has been the Donor Experience Manager at Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative for the past two years. In her role, she manages the annual fund of Beacon's donor pool, and works to incorporate CCF principles into her communications with mid and base-level donors. Before landing at Beacon, Clara worked in roles that ranged from donor database management to board development. Clara holds a B.A. in political science, french, and international studies from Luther College and will graduate with her M.A. in International Development from American University in April. When she's not working, you'll find Clara baking many types of breads, running along the parkway, or giving her cats way too much attention.
|Kristin Skaar has served Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota since 2014, and is currently the Development and Communications Director. In her role, she directs Habitat Minnesota’s communications strategy and fundraising program. Before coming to Habitat Minnesota, Kristin previously coordinated events for The ALS Association and Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. Kristin holds a B.A. in business management and Spanish from Luther College (Decorah, Iowa), where her passion for affordable housing was initially ignited. In her free time, Kristin enjoys exploring Minnesota via bicycle, or taking a hike in a state or national park. Kristin also likes finding ways to forge connections between people and looks for any excuse to host gatherings, from fundraising events to dinner parties (and can’t wait for it to be safe to do this again in person).|
