Event description

Description

NPInfusion was originally scheduled for September 21, 2017. Due to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, the event was rescheduled. Why such a long time between the original date and the new date? Phil-Com, the conference producer, made every effort to reschedule after the 2017/2018 fundraising season so that the most nonprofit professionals are able to attend.

www.npinfusion.com

It’s about infusing this sector with creativity and flexibility.

Grassroots methods can bring tremendous value to established nonprofits - and startup organizations have to deal with the same governance and donor retentions issues as do established nonprofit organizations. Let's learn from each other!

From startup to staying power is the theme of this high-energy event for nonprofit professionals of all levels, members of Boards of Directors, and students planning their entrance into the nonprofit industry.

9am - 9:30am Registration

9:30am Conference Begins

1. Simone Peterson, Manatee County, Winning big through competitive grants for social change

You don't have to be a startup or grassroots organization to obtain funding for projects focused on social change. Simone Peterson shares how she and her team at Manatee County Neighborhood Services won a coveted Knight Foundation grant to create "engagement zones" in the county. The engagement zones seek to improve two-way communication between the county and its citizens, and to draw millennials into the conversation. Hear how Simone is bringing together grassroots tactics within a county government framework.

2. Miraj Patel, Harness Change, Learn how to raise money in your sleep! The power of round-up donations and microdonations. What are they and how can they benefit your organization?

Many of today’s non-profits incorporate the strategy of throwing 5-7 annual events to raise big dollars from their top supporters. We zero in on our top 10% of donors, in hopes that a few of them will write the big check. And why not? it Works!

However, we leave millions of dollars on the table by not adequately serving and catering to our "average" donors. miraj will walk us through the power of microdonations and how we can elevate our $50-$100 donors to giving 5x more by simply changing “the ask”.

11:30 Boxed lunch and table disucssions

Round-table discussion topics thus far:
-Microdonations (here is your chance to ask
more questions!) chat with Miraj.
-Where do the ideas for social change come
from? (chat with Simone)
-Looking good! building the right resume to
land your perfect job


3. Risa Ward, Donorschoose.org, The donation is only one part of crowdfunding. Breaking down donor stewardship & corporate partnerships in a crowdfunding model

Crowdfunding is an effective way to raise money. It is easy for people to see a description of a project or need, and to give to support it. Crowdfunding charities and platforms can make giving even more rewarding by adding personalization throughout the giving experience.

Risa will share methods used at DonorsChoose.org, the leading platform for giving to public schools, to successfully engage crowdfunding donors.

Risa will also discuss how DonorsChoose.org builds on its crowdfunding platform to engage the companies of today who often want to be involved at a grassroots level, making the community or industry in which they work better. Risa will share how DonorsChoose.org makes a company's giving experience just as personal as an individual donor's.

4. Sabeen Perwaiz, Florida Nonprofit Alliance, Raising awareness for your mission by demonstrating impact. This session shares data from the Florida Nonprofit Alliance's economic impact report

Nonprofit organizations are more important to our society than ever. They not only serve our communities through mission delivery in areas such as health care, arts, social change, and human services, but are collectively a significant contributor to the overall economy.

While there is much information and reporting on the public and private sectors of the U.S. and state economies, the nonprofit sector’s economic contributions garner less attention. It is therefore crucial that the industry provide accurate information on the breadth and financial scope the "third sector" provides- in essence, reporting on its own success and lobbying for resources.

Florida Nonprofit Alliance quantifies the influence the nonprofit industry has on the economy of Florida in its 2016 Economic Impact report. Sabeen will share information from this report while discussing how nonprofits can use their own outcomes and impact measurements to tell their stories and encourage investment in the organization's mission.


2:30pm Conference ends
