Harvard University Exponential Fundraising Course, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Cambridge, MA. This is a private event and is not open to the general public.

Jennifer McCrea says that, "It’s time to look at fundraising through a new lens. A Course in Exponential Fundraising redefines fundraising as something that is not only mission critical, but also a powerful vehicle that can fundamentally transform organizations and the people who are involved with them. "

Designed for a select group of nonprofit leaders - from CEOs and chief development officers to board chairmen and directors - this executive program recasts fundraising as a dynamic relationship between organizations and their philanthropic partners that is designed from the start to be co-creative and generative. The curriculum offers new tactics for developing a collaborative, partnership-based approach to fundraising and philanthropy—a strategy that is transformational for nonprofit leaders, their partners, and their entire organizations.

The +Impact Conference, Washington D.C. This event is open to the general public. Please click here to register. 

Causecast provides giving and volunteering technology solutions that help companies reach the highest levels of employee engagement and social impact.
In contrast to the sluggish, forms-based, top-down approach taken by legacy giving and volunteering systems providers, Causecast helps companies build high-impact employee-led programs that are globally meaningful, locally relevant, and easy to manage – for a far lower total cost of ownership.
We believe that providing companies with easy-to-use ways to engage employees alongside one another in giving and volunteering activities is key to creating lasting social change and reaping the benefits of employee engagement. We recognize that engagement is not an end in itself, but a means to achieving better results for people, business and community.

GOODWILL INDUSTRIES OF THE SOUTHEN PIEDMONT

2017 Community Conversions Speaker Series, Charlotte, NC. This event is by invitation only. 

Goodwill Industries was founded in 1902 in Boston by Reverend Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist minister and early social innovator. Helms started Goodwill with the idea that people could earn a living repairing and selling donated goods. His business model was rooted in the philosophy that a job was better than a handout. “Not charity, but a chance,” he always said. Helms began his mission going door to door with burlap bags asking wealthy Boston residents to donate clothing. He then hired and trained people in need—many of whom were considered unemployable because they had disabilities—to repair, mend and clean the donated items so that they could be sold in thrift stores. The movement flourished and the Goodwill method of helping people earn employment was born.

Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont opened its doors in 1965 as an independent Goodwill affiliate agency with fewer than 20 employees. Today we are proud to be a 21st century leader in regional workforce development and employer of more than 1,100 people. Thanks to your donations throughout the years, we have provided critical employment services to more than 150,000 individuals and business partners in the greater Charlotte region, while creating stable jobs for clients with multiple barriers to employment. Our territory spans an 18-county area in the Carolinas, including Anson, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Polk, Richmond, Rutherford, Scotland, Stanly and Union counties in North Carolina and Chester, Chesterfield, Lancaster, Marlboro and York counties in South Carolina.
