Join MCN for this interactive session, which will be chock-full of practical, tactical solutions and actionable insights.
Principles & Practices
In an effort to support nonprofits in fulfilling their missions, this workshop will help to focus your work on the following practices:
- FINANCE 16: Nonprofit organizations should secure appropriate levels of funding to carry out their missions and activities and, when possible, diversify their revenue sources to avoid being dependent on a single funding type.
- FUND 15: A nonprofit should plan its communications to tell the story of the organization and maintain consistent, mission-focused and timely communication with donors.
- FUND 16: Nonprofits should establish a thorough understanding of their key audiences and regularly assess the effectiveness of communication strategies and tools used to reach those audiences. A nonprofit should adjust its strategies over time to best match technologies to its audiences’ communication preferences.
