Nonprofit Educational Series: Leadership, Collaboration, and Impact

Nonprofits all have special missions, including us: ensure nonprofits become sustainable organizations by assisting them with robust legacy giving and endowment programs.

To assist them acquire the knowledgebase and necessary tools to develop and fortify their own legacy giving and endowment structures within their organizations as they pursue the important work of their missions, the Dallas Jewish Community Foundations-Southwest Community Foundation have created the Nonprofit Education Series.

An innovative, thought-provoking collaboration to share, discuss and learn best practices that shape the success of our partner organizations and improve the sustainability of North Texas nonprofits.

Through a free, six-session lunch-and-learn series, which was launched in February, the series promises to maintain – even add – meaningful insight into opportunities, resources and engaging panels from leading experts, workbook guides and workshops on legacy giving and endowment programs.

In conjunction with this series, participants are given step-by-step resources to assist them through the implementation process.

From financial responsibility, like those covered in Jonathon Blum’s session, Fiduciary Duties for nonprofit Board Members & What you Need to Know, to program development, which will be covered in Cyd Friedman and Samantha Elandary’s next session, Paths To Legacy: Peer Panel Discussion How Others Are Developing Their Legacy Programs, it is our hope that by offering this impactful curriculum, North Texas will see an increase in sustainable organizations that continue to grow from their own robust legacy giving and endowment programs.

We know that agencies stay busy. We also recognize that agencies vary in size, scope and experience. By learning with, through and from others, a support system of like-minded mentors and experts is formed. We bring to the table a diverse group of agency leaders, both staff and professionals, who provide step-by-step resources to assist organizations through the implementation process.

In doing so, organizations will have a greater impact on our community’s systemic challenges.

Join us for the next session, which is open to all nonprofits. Click Here for more info and to register for the upcoming session.
