Presentation Overview:

Do you currently sit on a hand-me-down chair that is held together with duct tape and willpower? Are you tired of dancing around a conversation with your board chair about your woefully underpaid staff? Have you found yourself wondering how you can better tell the story of the importance of investing in your organization’s sustainability, employees, and workplace culture? Are you ready to boldly leap into conversations about why the charitable sector is crucial to the success of our nation and therefore deserves a true investment in its growth, training, and development? If you are crying tears of joy (or fear) at the thought of ending the “non-profit starvation cycle”, then this session is for you.

Come listen to United Way of the Inland Valleys tell their story of how they became the #1 United Way in California and #8 globally for annual campaign growth by making an investment in themselves and how their constituents are benefiting more than ever from this change.
