Advocating for the Non-Profit Sector

  • November 10, 2015

Panel The Pennsylvania budget is four months overdue and the financial impact levied upon the nonprofit sector amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars per month in delayed funding. In the meantime, nonprofits are spending down their reserves at incredible rates and taking on debt to maintain services for the community. This session will provide an overview of the budget impasse and how it affects fundraising in the near and long term. We will also discuss how nonprofits can engage their board and individual donor base as advocates for their organization and the sector as a whole. Please register now to hear from local nonprofit and development leaders on how they are approaching short and longer-term fundraising in this crisis. Topics will include: How and when do you engage your board and individual donor base as advocates during the state budget impasse? How to increase individual donor gift sizes and your base. Can and how do you fundraise to offset debt service? Rebuilding your reserves - why putting a plan in place now is essential. Presenters: Lindsay Aroesty Director of Donor Services/Planned Giving Specialist, The Pittsburgh Foundation Samantha Balbier Executive Director, Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership John Lydon CEO, Auberle and Chair, Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership Jodie Moore President, Neighborhood Academy Bethany Shaw Development Director, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh
