COVID-19 and nonprofits_ What is the new normal_ An online workshop with Dirk Bird_ AVP of Planned Giving _ Endowment_ Jewish Federations of North America
Wednesday, May 6 | Noon to 1 p.m. | Zoom webinar
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, work, learn, and worship. This workshop will explore how organizations and their leaders adjust to a new "normal" that will impact how we plan, how we engage our constituents, how we steward our donors, and how we measure success while maintaining (and re-articulating) our core values. We will discuss how to prepare for this new normal and develop frameworks that will enable us to think through these challenges in a thoughtful, proactive manner.

Open to the entire community; lay leaders of Jewish nonprofit agencies, schools, and synagogues will find it particularly helpful.
Free | Registration required | Link provided upon registration
