When Covid happened so quickly and the world shut down, many nonprofits were blindsided and financially unprepared. With 15 recessions since 1929, we should expect to encounter additional financial turbulence down the road.

How do organizations navigate the challenges of economic instability and plan for the long-term health of the organization?  What strategies are available to nonprofit organizations for surviving financial storms. 

Attendees will: 

  • Become aware of benchmarks for possible financial turbulence 
  • Gain insights for sound financial planning 
  • Learn strategies for adapting to financial challenges
