Planning for the next normal in the non-profit sector

03 June 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

  • When? 18 June at 11am BST
  • Where? No commute necessary - it’s held here
  • What? Chief executives and industry leaders share the approaches they are taking to set their organisation on the road to recovery

Many charities have been affected by the pandemic, seeing their income fall and demand for services rise. So what steps can they take next? On June 18th, we will be joined by a panel of charity CEOs discussing their approach to planning for changing times and for the road to recovery.

The webinar will cover the following subjects:

  • Pivoting. How have they pivoted their services during the pandemic and what lessons have they learned along the way?
  • Approaches to staffing arrangements. Have they had to furlough staff and will they have to reduce their headcount in the future?
  • Financial planning. What approach have they taken to planning for their finances given the current lack of certainty? Have they taken the decision to just remove a quarter of their annual income or have they taken a different approach?
  • Lessons from the pandemic: are they planning to have staff work remotely in the future? Have they run any successful virtual fundraising campaigns during the pandemic?
