At Subaltern Strategies, our dedication extends beyond conventional philanthropy; we are deeply rooted in the belief that every voice deserves to be heard, and every action in philanthropy should be a stride toward a more inclusive world. We aim to reinvent and restructure philanthropic giving by actively placing marginalized voices at the helm of decision-making.
Integrity Above All: We navigate this work with unyielding integrity. Our approach, from reshaping philanthropic dynamics to empowering historically silenced communities, reflects our commitment to meaningful and transformative giving.
Selective Partnership: Our belief in creating authentic impact means that we are discerning in our partnerships. We refrain from associating with entities that are not value-aligned or whose philosophies clash with ours and the communities we passionately serve. This isn’t just about business; it’s about resonating values and shared visions for a better world.
Mutual Discovery: Our partnerships begin with understanding. Most of our clientele come to us through referrals, and before we onboard any client, we engage in a mutual interview and conduct a comprehensive needs assessment. This ensures our collaboration is founded on mutual respect, understanding, and aligned goals.
Transparent Pricing: We are devoted to serving a spectrum of organizations and donors, both big and small. Our sliding fee scale is designed to accommodate diverse financial capabilities, and we take pride in being completely transparent about how this scale works and how fees are determined.
Empowerment Through Inclusivity: Recognizing the value of diverse voices, we challenge conventional top-down models of philanthropy. Our mission is to not only distribute funds effectively but to democratize the decision-making process by centering those who have been historically marginalized.
These commitments characterize our journey in philanthropy as we relentlessly strive to create a paradigm shift in the world of giving. At Subaltern Strategies, we don’t just champion the cause; we live it every day.
