In 2018 less than 75% of non-profit organizations met their fundraising goals. At the end of the day, every organization needs money to keep the doors open. No margin, no mission. In this Circle Elite Executive Roundtable, we will be joined by Meena Dayak, OPEN MINDS Executive Vice President, and Jim Wallis from the Chestnut Health Systems to discuss fundraising and why capital matters.

Executive attendees will learn:

  • Overview of fundraising
  • How to utilize non-traditional avenues to raise funds
  • Ensuring an ROI on your fundraising investment

The resurgence of the COVID Delta variant has certainly created new challenges for the country and for our families. Fortunately, the available COVID vaccinations have been very successful in preventing symptomatic infections and illness.

I wanted to share with you the key elements of our plan:

We will continue to monitor any changes in the CDC recommendations for the continued safety of the public.
