Philanthropy Northwest is proud to be a presenting sponsor with the Nonprofit Association of Oregon, GRANTMAKERS of Oregon and Southwest Washington and Washington Nonprofits for the Oregon Nonprofit Forum featuring Diana Aviv of the Independent Sector.
The nonprofit sector envisions a just and inclusive society spurred equally by innovation and adaptation and comprised of active citizens, effective institutions, and vibrant communities. But are nonprofits actually adopting the ideas that will change lives or are we simply rebranding old models? Do we fully grasp the implications and opportunities presented by challenges to the nonprofit business model such as online networking, corporate social responsibility programs, benefit corporations, and generational shifts in leadership? Isn’t it time that nonprofits be recognized as agents of change rather than just a tax status?
Diana Aviv, the CEO of the Independent Sector will discuss the economic and social forces changing the nonprofit sector for good by examining the evolving role that nonprofits play in communities and the changing responsibilities of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Nonprofits must embrace new means to achieve greater impact, inspire new ideas, and create a future where collaboration is the norm.
There will be an opportunity for a dialogue with Diana following her presentation so be sure that your organization is part of the discussion!
When: May 21st, 2014 8:30 AM through 10:30 AM PDT
