Overhead vs. True Cost: How to Change the Conversation 3/22/2018
When: March 22nd, 2018 2:00pm - 3:30pm ET / 11:00am - 12:30pm PT
The nonprofit landscape has changed dramatically over the last decade. Today, donors no longer support a nonprofit just because they seem worthy. Donors have higher expectations for the impact of their gift and can access resources to measure whether or not a nonprofit is considered effective. As a result, nonprofits use low overhead to appear more attractive to donors. This often results in a vicious starvation cycle for nonprofits who struggle to balance resources between running their organizations and meeting the performance demands of donors. Drawing on twenty-five years of fundraising experience, Barbara O'Reilly will share strategies for how to change the conversation with your donors to focus on the true cost of impact.
