About our group

Driven by profit, transnational corporations inflict devastating harm on people and the planet. Members of the Corporate Accountability Giving Circle dig into crucial questions about the root of some of our deepest societal challenges. How does corporate power uphold systemic racism, extract wealth and natural resources from communities, and drive the unequal distribution of wealth? From our climate, water, and food crises to public health disparities, how do corporations cause and profit from some of today’s most pressing problems? How are communities of color in the U.S. and the Global South organizing to take on corporate power? And how can you get involved?

The Giving Circle is inviting new members for 2021-2022! All Giving Circle members commit to six months of learning, organizing, and fundraising. Requirements:

1) Attend a two-day retreat to get oriented to the circle, build relationships with fellow members, deepen your learning and analysis, and take collective action.

2) Attend monthly video conference calls with other Giving Circle members to continue building community, get updates on the campaign work, take action, and connect with movement partners.

3) Give or raise a base contribution of at least $1,000 to secure your spot in the Giving Circle.

4) Take high-level actions, including attending campaign events, mobilizing your networks, hosting action-oriented house parties, and fundraising from your networks.

THE IMPACT YOU’LL HAVE

The power of transnational corporations is rooted in the legacies of racism, colonialism, and imperialism. So those who bear the biggest brunt of corporate abuse are people of color, women, young people, indigenous people, low-income communities, and people in the Global South. Corporate Accountability centers these communities’ experiences and solutions to challenge corporate power and the structures propping it up.

We ask giving circle members to give or raise a base contribution of at least $1,000 to secure your spot in the Giving Circle. Members will have different levels of access to wealth/experience with fundraising. Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to make additional contributions to movement partners working on water, climate, and food justice campaigns. If this cost is at all prohibitive to your participation in the circle, please contact us!

Corporate Accountability's giving circle supports the organization's campaigns and mission as well as our grantmaking program, which re-grants more than $400,000 annually to organizations on the frontlines of corporate abuse globally and in the U.S. These organizations are our allies and partners, so we generally offer support on many levels including research, strategic campaign planning, grassroots mobilization, fundraising and communications.
