About the Event

*Who’s it for?*

This workshop is for non-profit leaders who want to see opportunities present in this time

Description - Social isolation has thrown a wrench into our plans.  We’re unable to gather in person for meetings, we’ve had to cancel our events or make them virtual, and we aren’t allowed to meet with our donors, users, and partners.


But despite all that, this moment presents amazing opportunities to invite people more deeply into relationship with our nonprofits.  We just need to identify what those opportunities are and figure out how to optimize them. 

Join us on the Zoom video platform for a one-hour exploration of concrete steps you can take immediately – with the money and resources you already have right now – to strengthen the bonds between your key stakeholders and your work.  You’ll leave with fresh ideas about how to engage your leaders and supporters so they’ll feel like insiders who want to invest in your mission.

By the end of the session, you will:

·    Feel connected with other nonprofit leaders who share your struggles

·    Recognize the deeper reasons why it’s important to connect with key stakeholders

·    Have at least 3 concrete things you can do to engage people without spending money

·    Experience fresh sense of what's possible for meaningful virtual engagement 

Co-Designed and Facilitated by:
