The social sector is experiencing tremendous changes and foundations, individual donors, corporations, government, nonprofits, and community leaders are beginning to shift how they understand sustainability.

To achieve organizational sustainability, funders and social sector organizations are changing the culture of scarcity that has impacted the sector for decades. For grantmakers, this means understanding what it really takes to deliver impact and how we can better drive sustainability and impact.

Join us to explore the components of nonprofit financial health in a special session led by David Greco, founder of Social Sector Partners.

Together, we'll explore the Real Cost framework and what you need to know to engage grantees in conversation about what it really takes to deliver great outcomes.

By aligning grant dollars to the financial and business needs of nonprofit organizations, grantmakers can better support nonprofit financial sustainability and leverage their limited resources to achieve better results. But in order to do so, we need to ask the right questions and have the right information to assess the financial health and condition of the organizations they support.

This program is geared toward grantmakers who currently have a good working knowledge of how to review nonprofit financial data and are seeking to increase their understanding of nonprofit financial health.

Breakfast will be provided.
