This session is FREE to attend and open to any nonprofit organization’s employees, volunteers & Board Members.
Nonprofits are often some of the most nimble and adaptive entities to weather a crisis, but the COVID-19 pandemic has certainly stretched that adaptability beyond what most professionals have experienced in their careers. This session will leave participants with the practical tools to implement a short-term Pivot Campaign, the long-term framework for how to transform your Annual Fund, and the lens through which you can find the best and most relevant resources your organization needs.
In times of crisis like we’re experiencing right now with the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s hard to know how to respond. As difficult as it is, the best response lies somewhere in between: in remaining honest without being defensive, and in taking a step back to better analyze the situation without ignoring it altogether. In this session, we will discuss a series of steps that your organization can follow in case of an emergency or other unexpected event. It details the messaging you’ll be using, how you’ll be communicating and responding to the public. Whether your organization is facing an internal challenge (such as a board member who’s been accused of harassment) or one that’s precipitated by outside challenges (such as a Pandemic) one of the most important things you can do is have a plan in place.
