"Mover & Shaker" Award for Bold Peer Organizing
Solidaire is deeply honored to receive the “Mover and Shaker” Award for Bold Peer Organizing for the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP)’s 2023 IMPACT Awards.
The “Mover and Shaker” Award for Bold Peer Organizing goes to a funder that centered their work on the needs of excluded and impacted communities, leveraging their reputation and convening power to advance systems-change strategies.
“The Committee chose Solidaire for their extraordinary work moving quickly to distribute funds to community-led social justice movements, specifically reproductive, gender, racial and climate justice. Their donor engagement and activism through education influences not just foundations and institutional donors, but also individual high net worth donors who are increasingly having a greater say in how groups are funded.”
– Aaron Dorfman, NCRP President & CEO
Solidaire will accept the award at a ceremony in Los Angeles, California on October 18 during the 2023 CHANGE Philanthropy Unity Summit, a three-day conference that looks to create a diverse and safe space to gather and deepen individual and institutional practices that advance equity with an intersectional lens and community at the center.
We are deeply honored to receive the “Mover and Shaker” Award for Bold Peer Organizing. Here at Solidaire, we see ourselves as one force among many in a long, liberatory struggle and we are committed to accompanying movements as they contest for power. We model our solidarity with movements by moving money quickly and boldly, and meeting our partners in their various forms of development and growth. We are honored to follow the trusted guidance of movement leadership and movement elders as we work together to transform society so that every community has the resources to flourish.
– Rajasvini Bhansali, Solidaire Executive Director
