Project Phoenix
Project Phoenix: Connecting Democracy, Economy and Sustainability (Phoenix) is a year-long cohort collective learning program for funders who are grounded in social and racial justice values and analysis, focused on how to practically achieve a just transition to a "new economy" and philanthropy's role in that transition, and interested in developing as "new economy" philanthropic thought leaders, in a cohort that is challenging itself to grapple with complex structural and intersectional issues and lift up viable pathways forward.
