Pivoting in a Pandemic - New Funding Strategies

The pandemic has required nonprofits to add agility and adaptability to our reservoirs as we face challenges including identifying new revenue sources, launching capital campaigns, and completing nonconventional real estate deals.

Our panelists together will offer their views from the perspective of a nonprofit engaging in social enterprise, a community foundation participating in a collaborative philanthropic initiative, and a professional with nonprofit clients reinventing the traditional real estate deal.
