[WEBINAR] COLLABORATING FOR CHANGE IN TODAY’S POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT
JULY 12, 2018 12:00-1:00 PM EST
Public policy doesn’t happen in a bubble. Change is often spurred by an alignment among policymakers, influencers, grassroots groups and thought-leaders that together shape priorities that translate to action. This session explores how non-profit leaders and organizations can successfully build relationships and alliances that can help move your public policy goals forward.
This session will focus on:
- How to build relationships with those in power
- What you should consider when framing issues
- Strategies for working with those outside your usual circle
- Building coalitions with likely and unlikely allies
PEEL REGION WORKSHOP: PHILANTHROPIC TRENDS
JULY 17, 2018 8:00-10:00 AM EST
Today’s fundraising landscape is experiencing a fundamental shift where, in many ways, old rules simply no longer apply. In this presentation, Nicole Nakoneshny, KCI’s Senior Vice President and Editor of Philanthropic Trends Quarterly, will share KCI’s observations about the market forces – demographic, economic, social and competitive – that are shaping fundraising and philanthropy in Canada today. She will also share KCI’s insights and observations about what these market forces mean for the sector and the charities in it…and, perhaps most importantly, what charities should be doing to respond so that they and their fundraising programs survive and thrive.
