Welcome & Announcements | A Wake-Up Call for Nonprofits: How to Future-Proof Your Cause

Oct 25, 2021 8:00am ‐ Oct 25, 2021 9:25am

It’s no longer business as usual for nonprofit leaders, local and state governments, and those that advise them. The COVID-19 pandemic, protests and unrest around racial justice, and a fluid political and economic climate have upended all facets of the nonprofit landscape.

Add to this evolving technology, shifting donor behaviors, and changing demographics as even more factors disrupting the way nonprofits fundraise and communicate with supporters. How can organizations of all sizes and structures keep up with the breakneck pace of change? Don’t despair - there is hope!

In this talk, author and nonprofit communications expert Julia Campbell details the steps necessary to future-proof your organization so that you can confidently adapt, evolve, and thrive (not just survive) in the next decade and beyond.

Audiences will walk away inspired and motivated with an understanding of the following:

  • The dramatically changing fundraising landscape and the implications for nonprofits;
  • The 7 steps to thrive and not just survive in the new normal;
  • How to manage through these changes and get buy-in from the Board, supervisors, and staff;
  • How to pivot your marketing and fundraising strategy to be more proactive and not just reactive.
  • Exactly what tax practitioners/auditors need to care about and pay attention to when advising clients through these changes.

Anticipated outcomes for participants:
They will walk away with:

  • Actionable strategies and real-world examples of ways that even small nonprofits can get results with digital storytelling;
  • Ideas and inspiration to start building their own storytelling plan.

Impact of Pandemic Fundraising Strategies on 990 and Financial Reporting

Oct 25, 2021 10:55am ‐ Oct 25, 2021 11:45am

With nonprofits quickly pivoting their fundraising strategies in light of the pandemic, many may not have called their accountant or attorney for advice about tax, financial reporting and other ramifications.  Changes were often made quickly to survive financially with little concern for other issues.  Now, a year in, reporting deadlines are steadily coming due.  Organizations and their advisors are finding time to refocus on risk management, reporting and compliance responsibilities.  This session will explore what we are seeing as the biggest trends in fundraising by organizations, along with the tax, financial reporting and compliance issues that need to be considered.
