Take Charge of 2021!

AFP-NYC's Annual Meeting -- Panel Discussion now online

In late January I had the privilege to join three powerhouses in the NYC nonprofit sector to discuss the impact of the events of last year on fundraising and what the 2021 forecast looks like.  Victoria Bailey of TDF, Asha Curran of Giving Tuesday, and Tony Hillery of Harlem Grown discussed the resilience nonprofits have shown and the innovations that are changing how organizations reach their audiences. In case you missed it you can view the entire discussion below!

Tony shared that “having a team to pivot on a dime during a pandemic and not missing a beat in serving our community is one of my proudest moments."  This resilience and innovative approach to the challenges we faced prove how strong our sector is and how important we are for the communities we serve. 

There was some good news shared in the conversation, too.  Giving is up!  Donors want to help and want to find ways to connect with the organizations they care about.  Do yourself – and your organization – a favor and watch the conversation with Tory, Asha, and Tony.  The innovative programming, persistence with solicitations, and importance of resonant leadership that they address will undoubtedly fill your well with inspiration and insights to carry you forward toward more success this year.
