The COVID-19 Crisis has placed unprecedented burdens and constraints on the nonprofit community in critical areas like fundraising, capacity-building, programming, leadership development and short/long-term strategic planning.

What will it take to not only survive but thrive in our new era? While it is critical to focus on current operations and programs, nonprofit organizations must also be preparing and thinking about the “next normal” and be prepared for further disruptions in funding, supply chains, internal operations and regulations. Using research from McKinsey and Company as well as many of the greatest organizational strategists in the world, participants will learn discuss and share ideas, structures and plans for fearlessly moving forward into the future.


Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify and discuss trends influencing and shaping the nonprofit community now and implications for the future.
  2. Analyze and diagram three future-facing strategic frameworks to create a more agile organization with fewer dependencies and unforeseen disruptions.
  3. Prepare the outline for a lean strategic plan to make individual nonprofit organizations more responsive, resilient and anti-fragile.
