Have you ever read a book about the philanthropy/nonprofit world and wondered who you can call to discuss?
We’re excited to share a new way to bring members together – and to let your partners and friends off the hook – by hosting discussions of the hottest new philanthropic reads through our Book Club.
We launch on January 14th with a discussion of Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance by Edgar Villanueva, who was GWP’s Annual Meeting keynote speaker. In the book, Villaneva explores how various forms of privilege – together with historical mindsets, processes, and structures – have divided and wounded people, communities, and organizations throughout the history of the United States. With compassion and clarity, he offers thoughtful and practical steps – drawing upon Indigenous wisdom – that might help ‘decolonize’ wealth so that it can be used to heal, restore and connect.
To preserve the true nature of a book club, registration will be limited to 15 people before we begin a waitlist. If you don’t have a copy of the book, GWP has a limited supply on hand. Please indicate at registration if you would like to receive a copy.
Thanks to members of the African American Funders Group for recommending the book and helping to facilitate the inaugural meeting of GWP’s Book Club.
This will be a brown-bag session, so feel to bring a lunch. Dessert and beverages will be provided.
If you would like to suggest the next read for the club, please email Jenny.
We are committed to making GWP programs accessible to all members. If you have questions about the venue, or if an accommodation would be helpful to fully participate in this program, please reach out to Paula or call 412-471-6488 and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.
