ABOUT OUR MEMBERS
Solidaire members represent a wide range of roles within the broader giving ecosystem. From individual wealth inheritors and first generation earners, to those with positions on philanthropic boards and those who develop programmatic and grantmaking work, to those who advise and organize wealth holders, our members are poised to make an impact across philanthropic organizing.
Below are some figures that help give more life and depth to our vibrant, intergenerational community:
23% represent a philanthropic institution
19% identify as BIPOC
Our members are based across the United States, with our greatest density in key regional hubs in New York City (25%), the Bay Area (22%), the Northeast (13%), the Midwest (8%), and the South (8%).
By becoming a member of Solidaire, you are joining a powerful community of donor organizers that are moving unprecedented amounts of solidarity and support to the frontlines of social justice and making real change possible.
Our collective work happens through standing in our power as donor organizers and resource mobilizers. To that end, all dues-paying members have full access to relationship building and convening, deep political education, ongoing learning and collaborations, and experiential opportunities, including:
Regular events featuring movement partners, where there are opportunities for deeper learning and relationship building.
Annual Retreat for Solidaire members all over the country to convene together in one place to collectively dream, brainstorm, and learn together–complete with lots of joyful time to bond.
Regional Hub Gatherings to connect with other members and to local organizing.
Online Learning Calls and Webinars to connect with movement leaders and be in conversation with one another.
Political Education and peer learning opportunities to positively transform relationships between donors and movements.
Working Groups around specific focus areas such as Indigenous sovereignty, Black Liberation, and more.
Support critical, timely issues and movements, such as the Black Liberation Pooled Fund, which allocates resources to the powerful ecosystem of Black-led social change organizations around that country.
Members have an entire network of philanthropic stakeholders in which they can engage around immediate frontline movement needs and opportunities to support movements and movement actors.
