Our Work

BEA brings together dynamic grassroots organizing groups, effective national green organizations, and innovators in philanthropy. We open dialogues on deep strategy and work to equitably expand the pool of resources for organizations achieving results on the frontlines.

BEA projects are guided our goals, which you can learn more about here

Development Office Hours

Are you the sole fundraiser in your organization? Is fundraising (whether that’s writing proposals or talking to donors) another “to-do” on your long list of work? Are you interested in reimagining fundraising so that it is co-grounded in racial and economic justice? During these monthly sessions, we can hold space for both skill-building and information sharing while also challenging traditional fundraising practices. Want to sign up or learn more? Contact Danielle Freire, Development Director at @email
