Keynote Presentation: Pushing Philanthropy to the Margins

Ted Bunch
Chief Development Officer
A Call to Men

Ted Bunch, co-founder and chief development officer for A CALL TO MEN, will discuss the vital role of philanthropists as funders and partners. He implores funders to look beyond the mainstream to the margins to help solve issues for those most complexly impacted. Bunch will address the importance of donor engagement with grassroots organizations and common barriers to doing so, and why general operations support is a lifeline to many nonprofits.

Ted Bunch is an educator, activist and lecturer working to end all forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls. Bunch is Chief Development Officer of A CALL TO MEN and is internationally recognized for his efforts to prevent violence against women while promoting a healthy, respectful manhood. He is a leading voice on male socialization, the intersection of masculinity and violence against women, and healthy, respectful manhood.
