Amplify Our Voice

We all have capacity to be leaders in our organizations and communities. Whether through positional leadership or through the actions we take in our everyday lives, leadership defines our work and directs the change taking place in our communities.
Leaders of all levels and backgrounds are essential to building strong and vibrant communities. At this day-long gathering attendees will dialogue about personal and organizational change. We'll refresh our knowledge, focus on key values, recognize current trends and create a stronger community of nonprofit leaders. We'll define ways to speak up for our missions, our communities and ourselves. We'll amplify our voice.
The Nonprofit Leadership Conference is co-hosted by the Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center (PNLC) at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN).

Revenue Leadership: Taking Charge of Nonprofit Funding Streams

In an ideal world, every nonprofit would have reliable income over which they have complete control. Since that certainty is the case for very few organizations, nonprofit boards and managers must wrestle with the ups and downs, challenges and attached conditions of their funding sources. This presentation will break down the process of analyzing and developing a revenue strategy into three steps and segments of small group work. Participants will develop revenue profiles of their organization or program, based on the relative reliability and autonomy of their sources of funding. Using that data, they will then identify potential revenue priorities and strategies going forward. This does not lessen the constraints – but can clear the air so that decision-making is based on a common understanding of available degrees of financial freedom and the implications of changes in income and expenses.

Jon Pratt is executive director of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, co-director of www.GrantAdvisor.org and a contributing editor to the Nonprofit Quarterly.
