Our Thriving Nonprofit Sector Speaker Series Begins: Building Blocks for Creating Greater Impact: An Introduction

Feb 19, 2014

A group of 156 local nonprofit leaders from 95 organizations participated in our inaugural event to network with peers, and learn more about key building blocks for creating impact with Fay Twersky , Tess Reynolds, and Kathy Reich. This session 1 panel discussed the importance of theories of change and logic models, aligned performance metrics, and business models focused on sustainability and scale. They provided an overview of what these terms really mean, why they are vital for driving social change, and illustrated practical examples of implementation—addressing some of the misapprehensions leaders may face.

A copy of the resource list shared at the event is available on our event page. You may also access a recording of the session posted on the Sobrato Family Foundation’s YouTube channel by Monday, February 24.

Please remember to RSVP to Session 2: The Importance of Business Plans and Models scheduled for March 19. Panelists will include Jehan Velji, Portfolio Manager, Edna McConnell Clark Foundation and Sam Cobbs, CEO, First Place for Youth.
