What if philanthropy was about remaking the world into a thriving multiracial democracy?

We are a collaborative of social sector professionals who embrace the tradition of Freedom Dreaming* to imagine what our field and institutions could and must be to center racial justice.

Without new visions, we don’t know what to build, only what to knock down. We not only end up confused, rudderless, and cynical, but we forget that making a revolution is not a series of clever maneuvers and tactics, but a process that can and must transform us.”

At Freedom Dreams in Philanthropy, we invite philanthropy to explore with us through:

Practices of imagining, becoming, and transformation through written pieces, curated virtual convenings, in-person gatherings, and multimedia.

Spaces where visionary leaders can gather to connect, share, and  practice the future.​

Deep relationships between philanthropy and multidisciplinary leaders, scholars, and artists who are practicing the future.
