Real-time strategies for non-profit success
Submitted By Sean Reinhart
Over the last few years non-profits have found it increasingly difficult to raise the revenue they need. Contributions from the public sector have been reduced or eliminated and the private sector has become more selective about which organizations it will support.
Real-Time Strategies for Non-profit Success is a very special Executive Keynote event designed exclusively for Hayward-area non-profit executives and board members. On July 16, three leading grant-makers will share best practices on how non-profits can successfully raise the revenue they need to grow and thrive. The panel, consisting of Wells Fargo, the California Wellness Foundation and First 5 Alameda County, will be followed by a keynote talk with David La Piana, founder and managing partner of La Piana Consulting, a national firm specializing in solutions for the strategic issues faced by non-profit organizations and their funders.
La Piana is recognized as a leading expert on non-profit management and governance and has worked extensively with funders and non-profits across all sub-sectors. He has also taught at the University of San Francisco's Institute for Non-profit Organization Management and at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. His latest book is The Non-profit Strategy Revolution: Real-Time Strategic Planning in a Rapid-Response World (2008). Previous publications include Play to Win: The Non-profit Guide to Competitive Strategy (2005), which won a Terry McAdam Non-profit Book of the Year honorable mention award, and Strategic Restructuring: Mergers, Integrations, and Alliances (2003). He is working on a book about non-profit business planning which will appear late in 2012.
The Non-profit Executive Keynote is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
This inaugural event in Hayward is organized by the City of Hayward Library and Community Services Department in partnership with the Foundation Center and Hayward Chamber of Commerce. Catering will be provided by Neumanli Restaurant.
