Entrepreneurial Thinking for Nonprofits
Introductory Session
November 15, 8:30 am – 10:00 am
PLEASE RSVP NLT November 8 via email to Sister David Ann Niski
Those of us in the nonprofit community are well aware of the challenges we face each day as we strive to fulfill our missions while faced with the growing demand for our services and the increasingly limited resources. Grants, donations, fundraisers, and small fees for services are paying the bills and possibly not leaving much on the table for anything else. But what if there was a way to help you and your Board meet these challenges and find solutions for long-term financial sustainability?

 You are invited to join the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters Foundation and NetworkPeninsula on November 15 for some “out of the box” thinking that we believe can lead to a more sustainable nonprofit sector. To learn more, click here.
