Recession-Proofing Your Nonprofit: How to Continue Serving Your Mission During Challenging Times

On January 12, join us for a free webinar to learn how your organization can prepare for the recession.

Serving your mission during a recession can be tricky without proper preparation. Looking back helps us all plan ahead. Let’s turn back time and gain learnings from the Great Recession of 2007 as a reference for understanding how nonprofits will fare during a recession. During the last recession, charitable giving decreased significantly, leading nonprofits of all sizes to lose billions of dollars.

Now flash forward to today.

We are living in a post-COVID world, and once again the nonprofit sector is seeing a decline in revenue and increased demand for its resources. So how can organizations like yours start preparing yourselves to weather the storm? Join fundraising experts Bryna Dilman, Senior Director of Growth & Marketing, and Meredith Gray, Senior Marketing Manager, from Keela for an interactive session and learn how to raise more with your current donors and stakeholders, save acquisition costs and engage supporters during this difficult economic time.

In this webinar, you will learn how to continue to serve your mission during a recession by:

  • Gain insights from the past recession
  • Learn how to prepare your organization for the incoming recession
  • Understand how to look at your existing tools to help you raise more
  • 6 steps to engage with current stakeholders

This was the best webinar from Charity Village I have attended. I was glued to my screen the whole time. And 18 months into the pandemic and after watching a zillion webinars, my engagement was a testament to the quality of the speakers and the topic. Thank you and well done!
