This engaging presentation will focus on key financial sustainability issues. In building an effective case for support, nonprofit leaders, fundraising executives and board members need to have a strong understanding of the types and amount of money they need not only to delivery excellent programs but to also support the long term sustainability of the organization. The goal of this workshop is to help nonprofit leaders develop and use financial information to make sound decisions and to better communicate their financial needs to their supporters, funders, and board.
Social Impact Bonds, Pay for Success, Impact Investing, Hybrids, B-Corps, PRIs, MRIs, Social Entrepreneurship. Just what exactly is all this buzz about? In many ways, it is ultimately about increasing the size of the pie. It is about thinking of new ways to attract more money from either the private sector or government to address the challenges we are facing in our local communities. How can nonprofits develop new and innovative approaches that increase impact? How can funders better leverage their assets to drive mission outcomes? Join this lively discussion of ways to think beyond the grant and how to scale impact.
For grantmakers, knowing how to evaluate a grantee’s current financial health is more important than ever. Given today’s rapidly changing social sector, it is imperative that grantmakers have a comprehensive picture of a grantee’s financial performance - particularly in times of economic and political uncertainty.
By aligning grant dollars to the financial and business needs of nonprofit organizations, grantmakers can better support nonprofit financial sustainability and leverage their limited resources to achieve better and more results. But in order to do so, it is critical that grantmakers have the ability to assess the financial health and condition of the organizations they support.
These highly interactive and engaging workshops will provide grantmakers with the tools to better understand nonprofit financial health, especially in uncertain economic times, and to engage grantees in discussions about financial management challenges.
