Giving USA 2012 "Hot Off the Press"

The State of Philanthropy Today

With Jimmie Alford,
acclaimed nonprofit industry leader

Please join us on June 19th for review and analysis of the just released Giving USA data and trends. As an annual thank you, The Alford Group offers a complimentary analysis of the Giving USA numbers to our past and current clients, friends and community leaders. 

For this year's invitation-only event we are pleased to partner with Chuhak & Tecson, Attorneys at Law and The Lake County Community Foundation to welcome you to an evening discussion at the Rosalind Franklin Univeristy of Medicine and Science, a grant recipient of the Foundation.

This timely seminar with insights from  Jimmie R. Alford, Founder & Chair of The Alford Group, Andrew P. Tecson, President of Chuhak & Tecson, and moderated by Andy Shaw, President & CEO of the Better Government Association, will identify how trends may affect revenue projections in 2012 and discuss organizational congruency as the focus shifts back toward growth with caution. This session will examine both contemporary and traditional approaches to developing and marketing the work of not-for-profit organizations.

We are excited for you to join us for this once a year event. Space is limited so please register soon and we look forward to seeing you on June 19th!

These outstanding community partners are pleased to share the Giving USA 2012 numbers with you.null
