Making Nonprofits Profitable with David Greco, Social Sector Partners

Tuesday, July 31 @ 7:30 am - 11:45 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO 64110


If we are to achieve real outcomes and positive social change in our communities, we must end the culture of scarcity that has plagued the sector for decades.  The beliefs that nonprofit organizations are not sustainable, and that their business models are fundamentally broken are not reality. Our organizations can be profitable, and they can be sustainable, all while delivering real impact. 

Our role as nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, and board members is to ensure that people continue to have access to the programs and services that are essential to creating a more just, equitable and sustainable world. To truly lead, we need to shift from a scarcity mindset that starts from a position of weakness and insignificance, to one that starts from a position of opportunity and strength.

This customized workshop aims to change your thinking. The day starts with a keynote presentation followed by separate breakout sessions for funders and nonprofits.  We close by reconvening the two groups for a report out and concluding thoughts.

This workshop will be relevant for all nonprofit and foundation professionals, but senior leadership, executives and board members will benefit greatly from attending.
