Understanding Power and Privilege in 2020

by Keith Timko

These are times when in nearly every facet of life both publicly and privately we are asking fundamental questions around power, wealth, and privilege. These are times when donors and recipients alike are reading and considering the implications of books like Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World by Anand Giridharadas and Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance by Edgar Villanueva. And these are times when seeking the support of wealthy donors and families is particularly complicated. Do we forego donations and grants from these sources given the inequities that made these fortunes possible (e.g. the exploitation of slave labor or anti-union practices)? Or do we seek these funds as a stepping stone to a more just and equitable world? And is there an open and honest middle ground where we openly question the power structures behind this wealth while still seeking the support of donors?

GrantStation 20th Anniversary

The Beginning—BigData

by Steve Schellong

I came to Alaska in 1993 seeking new experiences and adventures in the mountains and wilderness. It turns out that one of my greatest adventures was launching GrantStation. After spending the first few years working around the state in the commercial fishing and oil industries, I decided to pursue my interest in helping organizations leverage technology to be more successful. In 1997 I joined Cindy and team to help lead the statewide sales and marketing for BigData, the original online database of funders that she had built specifically for Alaska nonprofits.
