The Giving Code: Bridging the Gap between Non-Profits and Funders plus Preparing for the CFRE add-on session
Santa Clara Biltmore
Luncheon 11:30a – 1:30p
In a region of staggering wealth and enduring poverty, how can local philanthropists and nonprofits work together to deliver greater impact for the Silicon Valley community? Heather McLeod Grant will present key findings from the Giving Code report, providing a more nuanced portrait of the region’s nonprofit and philanthropy ecosystems. She will outline some of the key disconnects between what local philanthropists expect and what local nonprofits are prepared to provide. How can both learn to communicate their needs and expectations to strengthen partnerships and, ultimately, community outcomes?
Heather McLeod Grant is a co-founder of Open Impact and the author of the best-selling book, Forces for Good. Formerly a consultant with McKinsey & Company, she holds an MBA from Stanford University and an AB from Harvard.
CFRE Workshop 10:00 - 11:00a
Do you know about the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential? Have you considered pursuing it yourself? Perhaps you feel you are ready, but you are not sure where to start or you are worried about the exam?
Learn more about the application requirements, how to navigate the process, and the benefits of obtaining certification from three CFREs at a special workshop before the chapter's October luncheon. You'll hear from three CFREs - ranging from 10 years to 10 months - who will provide an overview of certification, plus Q&A and advice on being successful.
AFP SVC Past President Ann-Marie Meacham, AFP SVC VP Development Matthew Taylor Siegel, and AFP SVC VP Education Sonia Wright will share and answer questions about the process and steps to obtain your CFRE. After a brief introduction about CFRE, this will be an interactive question and answer session.
