|Addressing the Challenges of Local Nonprofits
Presented by The Dayton Foundation, Montgomery
County and United
Way of the Greater Dayton Area,
this special seminar was held on April 6, 2011, for nonprofit CEO's,
development officers and Board leadership to address the challenges
facing local nonprofits and identify potential solutions and resources.
More than 200 nonprofit leaders gathered throughout the course of
the day. Participants learned at the morning session that those
organizations that receive significant public-sector funding will face
serious challenges. We want to encourage everyone to take
advantage of the toolkit that was discussed, especially the Nonprofit
Alliance Support Program (through The Dayton Foundation) and SCORE, as
you evaluate your alternatives. Your collaborative spirit is
needed now more than ever.
The Dayton Foundation, Montgomery
County and United Way have committed to hosting a follow up Forum
later this fall to continue the idea-sharing conversation and to hear
the progress on the strategies that began to develop in April.
