Move The Money: What is the Role of Philanthropy in Supporting Social Change Movements?

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 is the Role of Philanthropy in Supporting Social Change Movements?” guide, which should be paired with this brief video. First, watch the video to hear from funders and movement leaders about how to reshuffle power dynamics and change the culture of philanthropy in order to be in genuine relationship with social change movements. Next, use the guide to make reflections and connections, and to identify next steps and opportunities within your organization.
