Money Talks: How to Tell Your Nonprofit's Financial Story

2pm - 3pm (Virtual)

Crafting a financial story requires a shared understanding and interpretation of your organization’s numbers and how this connects to your current and continued mission success. It is often the connection for funder proposals that bridges the impact the organization has with how much it costs. This session will introduce leaders to ways to develop their financial story, which can be used to align stakeholder and organizational priorities, navigate leadership transitions, and convey how your programmatic work and finances fit together to create a comprehensive picture of your nonprofit's impact.

Presented by Alexandra Chan and Haydée Cuza from the Nonprofit Finance Fund

The Board Awakens: Engaging Your Board as Fundraising Ambassadors

Join us for an interactive seminar designed for nonprofit organizations eager to harness the power of video marketing.

Participants will have a chance to engage in interactive exercises and collaborative discussions, learn the art of crafting engaging video content, and explore cutting-edge video marketing trends.

More than ever, development teams are strapped for time, resources and capacity. Engage, educate and empower Board members to support the culture of philanthropy at your organization. We will discuss action-oriented strategies to recruit and engage diverse board members in fundraising activities, speak on the importance of recruiting a diverse Board, and share how to leverage Board members' unique perspectives as fundraising ambassadors. This will be an interactive workshop with activities and case studies so you can walk away with actionable next steps.
