Nonprofits and philanthropy have troubling histories rooted in racism, wealth accumulation, and white saviorism. We acknowledge that your support is essential in our growth and all that we do, but we also want you to know that this work is not transactional.
When you support 540, we want you to be actively involved in our practices and purpose. While we can list every single initiative that your donation will support here, it is important to note that this type of learning requires reflection and commitment. We hope you will explore for yourself why you would like to support this work.
