Watch Recording

In the last 10 years, the nonprofit sector has grown more than 60 percent in the United States to an estimated 1.5 million organizations. In every vertical, ranging from the environment to public health, there are hundreds if not thousands of organizations with similar names and missions competing for advocacy, donor, and foundation support. No wonder our constituents’ inboxes and mailboxes are stuffed with action alerts, Direct Mail appeals, and e-newsletters with similar messaging from several nonprofits vying for attention. If we are going to truly solve the world’s toughest social problems and obtain the necessary resources to do it right, we need to examine how the nonprofit sector can evolve to create more innovative and efficient organizations. This involves disrupting the nonprofit sector as we know it today.

Drawing from Allyson Kapin and Amy Sample Ward’s book Social Change Anytime, Everywhere, topics will range from “Thinking Like A Start-Up” to exploring “Reducing Competition and Consolidating Resources.”
