Event description

Description

Invest in Staff, Advance Your Mission is the theme for the 2018 North County Nonprofit Forum. The event will kick off with a keynote address "Fund the People"! Why should nonprofits invest in their staff? How can they afford it? How and why should funders help, when they largely focus on supporting programs and services? Rusty Stahl founded Fund the People, the national campaign to maximize investment in the nonprofit workforce. He will share ideas, research, and tools to help you integrate "talent-investing" into your fundraising or grantmaking efforts.


The forum will also incude the following breakout sessions:

Finally, a panel will focus on strategies for empowerment and retention. Claire Peeps of the Durfee Foundation will serve as panel moderator. Panelists include: Sandra Dickerson, Your People Professionals; Christa Roth, Leading From Within; and Rusty Stahl, Fund The Poeple.

Rusty Stahl is President & CEO of Fund the People, the national campaign to maximize investment in the nonprofit workforce. The organization works to address a chronic problem that many funders and nonprofits barely recognize as an issue -- the system-wide deficit of investment in the nonprofit workforce. Through his leadership, Fund the People has established the “Talent-Investing Framework,” an approach to fundraising and grantmaking that acknowledges nonprofit professionals as the essential assets of nonprofit capacity, performance, impact, and sustainability.

Rusty founded Fund the People in 2014. Previously, Stahl spent several years as a Visiting Fellow in Residence at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, where he studied the challenges facing the nonprofit workforce. Prior to that, Rusty served for 10 years as founding Executive Director of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP), the association of young and new grantmakers. Stahl began his career as a Program Associate at the Ford Foundation, where he focused on strengthening philanthropy and the nonprofit sector as a crucial part of our democracy.
