Move The Money: What Do Movement Leaders Need From Philanthropy?

Building Movement Project (BMP) presents Move The Money: Practices and Values for Funding Social Movements, a set of resources geared towards grantmaking institutions eager to expand and deepen their support of organizations, networks, and leaders involved with social change movements. Move The Money consists of four videos and accompanying discussion guides which contain reflection questions and recommendations that highlight the perspectives of movement leaders and funders on the following topics:

  • Why are Social Change Movements Important?
  • What is the Role of Philanthropy in Supporting Social Change Movements?
  • What do Movement Leaders Need from Philanthropy?
  • How can Philanthropy Support Movement Leadership?

This is the “What do Movement Leaders Need from Philanthropy?” guide, which should be paired with this brief video. First, watch the video to hear movement leaders — who are managing multiple and overlapping crises — make the case for personal and organizational sustainability. Next, use the guide to reflect on the four core needs of movement leadership, and identify where and how your organization can bolster these areas and sustain movement leaders.
