Why Join The Rooted Collaborative™?

It’s pretty simple – you’re tired of the same ol’ same ol’. 

You’re a relationship builder, a mission accelerator, a money magnet. You chose to be a development professional because you learned early that the work you do doesn’t pay for itself!  However, when you look to your left and right at work– you’re often the only one that looks like you. 

Here’s the tea – you’re not alone.  There are so many other BIPOC professionals who do the work but are tired of having to do THE WORK alone. Now enters – The Rooted Collaborative ™!

Unlike other membership communities, The Rooted Collaborative ™ doesn’t just “live” online. We’re in these fundraising streets, gathering resources, collecting data and setting trends so that YOU can be at the top of your game.  As a result, you’ll be connected with our network of 10,000+ women from around the world, have access to our affinity groups, and attend our robust series of member -only programming. 

Also, we understand that fundraising is a labor of love – but it’s also a business. That’s why The Rooted Collaborative ™ teaches you fundraising strategies that work 10X better than any other methods, saving you time, energy, and money. Because as we all know – extra coins are always a bonus! 

Your health is a critical component of career and life success.

we provide tools, training and resources to ensure that you’re living your best life. From mental health to legacy building; we are laser focused on ensuring you are living the life you deserve.

And last (but certainly not least), we make sure our values come alive for everyone. We honor and acknowledge the importance of gender identity and expression and work to ensure women of all backgrounds can do their best work, thus creating a safe and equitable space for everyone to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. 

It really is that simple.

“You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness.”
