Strategic Philanthropy in Uncertain Financial Times
In a time when every day seems to bring something new, it's a challenging time to be a charity. We know our sector will be profoundly affected economically with the COVID-19 virus as a pivot point. This is true not only for those in healthcare and community services but for all of us. This economic uncertainty seems unlikely to resolve itself in the near future. Now is the time for thoughtful discussion on how we can best position our organization for success in this new economic circumstnace.
What's an already busy fundraiser to do? How can we respond to our donors, provide assurance to our administrators, and keep our mission driven organizations moving forward when so much is unknown?
Join us for a discussion on strategic philanthropy in uncertain times. This session features a panel discussion, including our senior counsel, KEN RAMSAY and GRANT MONCK, and our leadership team, ED SLUGA, LINDA HENRY, and JULIA MAGNUSON-FORD. Collectively, these individuals have weathered economic uncertainty in small charities and big ones, and will bring their wisdom and experience on what has worked in past periods of economic depression, including where the silver linings can be found.
