Shifting the Power to the People You Exist For with Vic Hancock Fell

Support for this show is brought to you by our friends at Bloomerang. Bloomerang offers donor management and online fundraising software that helps small to medium nonprofits, like First Tee of Greater Akron, a nonprofit that empowers kids and teens through the game of golf. After just one year with Bloomerang they doubled their unique donors, improved donor stewardship, and raised more funds. To listen to the full interview with First Tee of Greater Akron visit .

We have a responsibility to ensure that we recognize and respect the power of the people we exist for.

Vic Hancock Fell co-founded a small international development charity when she was fresh out of university, age 21. She didn’t feel it or know it at the time, but looking back 14 years later, she describes this as what she calls “peak White Saviour.”

Most recently, through the context of her work at UK based Raising Futures Kenya, as a White/Western led INGO, she has been more active in advocating for responsibility to acknowledge and minimize White power in this space both as individuals and as organizations.

In this episode, we take a look at the concept of “shift the power” and why it is so important for us as socially purposed organizations, especially those working in global solidarity.
