Conference Call: Hurricane Florence Recovery Efforts

In the wake of Hurricane Florence, NCNG members have expressed interest in understanding how their peers are responding to the disaster. With this in mind, NCNG will host a conference call on Sept. 26 at 11:00 a.m. If your organization is responding to the storm in some way, we hope you’ll use the call as an opportunity to briefly share your efforts with us and your peers. And if you have questions, or if you’re interested in learning who’s doing what, we hope you’ll join us as well.

Capacity Building Champions Learning Community Meeting

Do you throw around terms like, “leveraging funds,” “assessments,” “training,” and “capacity” in casual conversation? Do you find joy in all things nonprofit sustainability-related? Does your foundation have a capacity-building program in place? Do you aspire to help nonprofits succeed in this challenging climate?
 
If you answered “yes” to even one of these questions, then we have found the NCNG Learning Community for you! Join your fellow Capacity Building Champions for the fall meeting on October 10th in Burlington. We’ll hear updates from peers on ongoing capacity collaboratives in our state, take a peek at an assessment tool-kit from the Hewlett Packard Foundation, and hear from our very own Dr. Mark Sorrells about his recently-completed research on capacity building through an evaluation framework.
 
We’ll also have plenty of time to share with one another.

Charlotte Donors Forum Luncheon

Aging in Community:  Dementia/Alzheimer’s Care and How Charlotte Can Prepare to Serve our Aging Community

Aging is inevitable, and it affects us each personally and professionally.  By 2035, more than 1 in 5 North Carolina residents will be age 65 or older.  Considering this rapid demographic shift, local leaders have been working to ensure Charlotte is an “age-friendly” community, accommodating the realities and needs of older adults and their families.
 
You are invited to our next Donors Forum luncheon to hear from two thought leaders about how their organizations and the broader Charlotte community are preparing to serve our aging citizens and their families.  Dr. Charles Edwards II, Founding Physician of Memory Care Center of Charlotte, and Suzanne Pugh, President and CEO of Aldersgate Continuing Care Retirement Community, will share information about how their organizations address health and wellness for patients and families experiencing memory loss and how they have created supportive independent living housing options and opportunities for meaningful community engagement for older adults.  The discussion will also include needs that remain under-addressed and the implications for the larger community, including how the philanthropic community might be helpful.

Emerging Leaders Learning Community Meeting

Career development in philanthropy can look, well, a bit different than it does in other sectors. What steps can you take to grow in your current role and think about your next steps for career advancement? Join the NCNG Emerging Leaders Learning Community to talk about this (and more) with Marirose Steigerwald, Director of Operations for the N.C. Community Foundation. Prior to joining the Foundation in 2016, she was a partner in a consulting firm specializing in search and leadership development, and she has served in leadership roles in both large and small public and privately held companies. Of course, this will also be a great opportunity to connect with your peers around the state. Register today!

Participation, Power and Philanthropy: Putting Nonprofits and Communities in the Driver’s Seat

As grantmakers, our desire to have a positive impact on the communities we serve fuels our work. In order to create the greatest impact, we must work side by side with nonprofits and communities to solve problems and determine the most effective path forward. But what does it look like to have nonprofits and communities drive our work? How much participation is required to center our work on what the community tells us it needs? How can we be advocates for this approach to philanthropy? This full day workshop will answer these questions.

Through individual reflection, group activities, peer coaching and discussion, this hands-on workshop will help you assess how nonprofits and communities currently participate in your work. We will discuss the importance of examining participation through diversity, equity and inclusion lenses, and you will leave with tools to help your organization plan for three important “w’s” of participation: when participation is important, who should participate and what participation could look like. We will end our day with dedicated time to reflect on the role you can play in creating opportunities for participation moving forward.
 
We'll tackle the essentials of participation, helping you to:

  • Gain an understanding of why participation is a critical component of all of the work that you do
  • Assess how diversity, equity and inclusion might influence participation
  • Use different tools, resources and frameworks to foster greater participation with nonprofits and communities
  • Develop a plan to help your organization with its participation efforts
 
Don’t miss the opportunity to step away from the day-to-day and spend time thinking about this critical issue.
