You’re working from home.
And you’ve cancelled or modified your programs.
So now what do yo do?
It’s a challenging time to be running programs at your nonprofit. With social distancing becoming the new normal, one of the most people-centered sectors is now behind a laptop and cell phone screen, with all interaction mediated by social media and a video conference.
But there’s a lot you can be doing right now and the best place you can start is to actually begin re-thinking your programs. COVID-19 is transforming our economy in ways we don’t fully understand. Nonprofits are either overwhelmed by needs – like food pantries and crisis-assistance services responding to people desperate for hep right now – Or they are facing the reality that entire programs have to be canceled or made remote, like summer camps, after-school programs, and arts and culture activities.
It’s time to take an honest look at how the landscape of your program or service has changed. In this seminar you will learn 7 strategies you can use to find out more about how this crisis is affecting your community and how your nonprofit can be better prepared to respond.
Register today! Due to the interactivity in this 1-hour session, space is limited. Please make sure that you can attend if you reserve a spot.
