The Women's Executive Roundtable

It’s never too late

What did you want to be when you grew up? In America, we are asked to choose our future at a very young age; but as we mature, so do our interests and needs.  Restlessness or dissatisfaction in our work and in our life can indicate that it’s time to chase a new dream.  Whether it is your work or your life situation, it is never too late to chase that new dream.  Learn about a variety of methods for identifying, clarifying and pursuing your dreams.

Non-Profit Discussion Series: Part 2

 

Nonprofit + Business Partnerships = Stronger Community. Everybody Profits.

Please join us for GWCC's "Everybody Profits from Nonprofits" Discussion Series with local nonprofit and for-profit business leaders. 

 

Topic: What Do Major Donors Look For In Nonprofit Financials?

Major gifts are key to securing financial stability. In addition to learning about a nonprofit’s programs, savvy donors want to know about a nonprofit's financial metrics.  Donors are particularly interested in efficiency ratios, revenue and expense trends, and evidence of financial stability.  Join us to get a better understanding of how to determine and use these metrics to your advantage.
