By Casey Pechan on 02/06/2020

An important philanthropic project was just announced.

At Fluxx, we’re consistently inspired by great content. This can be served in the form of exciting client updates, blog posts, or industry news and trends.

By Casey Pechan on 01/24/2020

The collective action approach was developed because funders knew they needed to do more.

Meet the Fluxx Community at User Groups Around the World!

By Shawn Garrison on 12/20/2019

By Casey Pechan on 12/12/2019

Maybe it’s just us, but 2020 is ushering in a sense of excitement and finality. Another decade is coming to a close, leaving many of us to reflect upon the last 10 years, marvel at the changes we’ve seen, and ponder what’s to come.

By Casey Pechan on 11/21/2019

Next year is fast approaching and with it, some major political and social movements. In the same year, U.S. citizens will hit the polls to choose our next president we will all be asked to opt into the 24th census. Even without it being an election year, the census would have been politically charged. We all remember the controversy and back and forth that ensued when the administration tried to slip a citizenship question into the census.
