Equipping nonprofits to advance social change

Service Delivery and Social Change

2010 Convening Report

In June 2010, the Building Movement Project held a convening at the Pocantico Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund entitled Service Delivery and Social Change.  It brought together organizations already deeply in the midst of incorporating social change work into their service delivery and was attended by representatives of 28 organizations from across the country, including nonprofit service providers, intermediaries, and funders/funder affinity groups.

This report offers a summary of participants’ reflections on their own ongoing efforts as well as on the evolution that has taken place in the field towards greater incorporation of social change models since the Building Movement Project’s first meeting on this topic three years earlier.  The report also lays out a set of recommendations for how we can be advancing this work throughout the sector.
