In a 2013 study, Underdeveloped (https://www.compasspoint.org/underdeveloped), the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund and CompassPoint captured a distressing picture of the chronic fundraising challenges facing today’s nonprofits.
A more-recent study, Fundraising Bright Spots (https://www.compasspoint.org/brightspots) examines how a select group of social change organizations is achieving breakthrough results in individual giving. The study documents the deeper organizational attributes that enable these organizations to excel, and explores common themes in the mindset behind these organizations’ fundraising, day-to-day practices and habits of their people, organizational cultures and systems.
Register by 7/11 - Your $10 registration fee will help the Chapter purchase appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages. (You’ll be able to purchase additional food and adult beverages if you prefer.)
