How can you be nimble in the face of events that impact the trajectory of your NPO’s mission? Challenges even in the best of times seem to emerge by the day and with them a call to pivot campaigns and adjust operations.
COVID-19 — the most recent and wide-reaching hurdle to date — has asked charitable campaigns to adapt like never before: adaption necessary to ensure operational longevity, economic health, and continued stakeholder support of charities and non-profits. And also undoubtedly leaving a lasting, seismic impact on our campaigns and communities.
In this discussion, we’ll evaluate the most pressing needs for Not-for-profit Organisations looking to survive and thrive while having to quickly pivot, weigh the opportunities (and options) for conscientious fundraising, and share how to leverage the resources your community needs now to ensure sponsorship dollars down the road.
