Fundraising for Smaller Organizations
Tuesday, January 26, 2021 – 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Fundraising takes time and resources—things not always available to smaller nonprofits. Mix in the realities of the pandemic, a larger emphasis on issues of equality and racial justice, and the exhaustion of the election and it may feel like a recipe for disaster. But, as this workshop will demonstrate, there also is an opportunity to learn new techniques that will help build a fundraising strategy that is realistic, makes the most of time available, and helps to keep a nonprofit on track.

What Shape Should You Be? Strategic Re-Structuring for Valley Nonprofits
Wednesday, February 24, 2021 – 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Especially in this pandemic era, to survive nonprofits must be creative and flexible – and many want to explore mergers, back office consolidations, and partnerships that are more than MOUs or informal agreements. These nonprofit “shapes” are options of strategic re-structuring. This free workshop will overview these options, including ways to find out more what might work for a particular nonprofit. Speakers will be Carrie Harlow, Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative; Jennifer Vanore, PhD, UniHealth Foundation (managing funder of NSI), as well as past NSI participants Brittney Weissman, NAMI Greater Los Angeles County; and Joan Maltese, PhD, Child Development Institute, who will share lessons learned with strategic re-structuring. The workshop’s co-hosts are Valley Nonprofit Resources, Community Foundation of the Valleys and NSI. Nonprofit EDs and other leaders from the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys are encouraged to bring along a Board member to this event, since Board support is essential for success.
