"Power Back in the community: Going Beyond Performative Generosity in nonprofits

Abstract: Our study critiques nonprofits in the United States, using settler colonial and critical whiteness theories. Nonprofits rely on the donations of wealthy white donors to support marginalized communities. Yet, nonprofits, through donor support, fund projects that benefit marginalized communities without critiquing how the money was earned, who it belongs to, and why such inequities exist. If nonprofits seek to truly invest in marginalized communities, they need to be critical of their own model. This article depicts a composite counter‐story about a woman reflecting on her experience working for a nonprofit, and her decision to quit her job when she realizes that the organization she worked for did not truly put 'power back in the community' like they claimed. Using a fictionalized counter‐story, this article presents the very real ways in which nonprofits can use Indigenous values to go beyond performative generosity.
