    with Robin Stacia Psy.D

    This event will build on July's talk about the current DEI movement- digging in to next steps and reviewing tools for nonprofit leaders.

    Robin will focus specifically on the internal and the external work:

    • Internal -is defined as within the individual and within the organization that results in greater accountability to DEI.
    • External- is work that centers on the organization's mission and how it achieves impact in the community.

    Robin will be outreaching local community leaders about their response to the movement and their organization's ability to make critical changes.

    Pre-readings/pre-work will be shared with registration.

    • MVNC invites you to our fall Fundraising MV event:


    • Fundraising is selling.  Most of us involved in nonprofit organizations don’t think of fundraising in this manner.  However, the tactics, outreach and general communication skills are the same.   In order to get comfortable with the “ask” for money, you have to first understand:

    • how to prepare for the conversation
    • what language to use 
    • how to approach your potential donors. 
    Or, perhaps you want to get other people involved in the organization and aren’t quite ready to ask them to donate their time or their money.  What do you say, how do you incorporate a story that is going to get your potential donor to lean forward and want to hear more, and to invest themselves? 

    Join us for a one hour webinar in which we tackle the above challenges.  You’ll walk away with tangible tools and language to use immediately. 

    Our Presenter: Lindsay Wolff
