Nonprofit Leader Forum

Presented by: Sattler College

Have you ever wondered how you financially compare to other nonprofits? 

We understand. You are busy attracting and retaining donors, designing programs, and living your mission. But what if you are missing something big?

We Can Help.

Donors know that financial ratios can reflect how well a nonprofit uses its financial resources to achieve mission outcomes. However, most nonprofits are simply too small to be listed by the big rating agencies like Charity Navigator or Guidestar. Or they are listed with no ratios or ratings--just a text description. 

Business students at Sattler College analyzed 95,000 nonprofits with the same financial ratios used by the big agencies. In this forum, participants will have a lively peer-to-peer discussion of what nonprofits are doing to improve financial performance in ways that result in better mission outcomes. 

Before joining in this financial performance best practices forum, each participant will submit 10 numbers from their recent Form 990s, then receive a custom ratio analysis comparing them to 95,000 other nonprofits.

Examining the State Budget: The Senate’s Proposal

Presented by: NH Fiscal Policy Institute

The State Senate is currently scheduled to finish its work on the State Budget by June 3, which will lead to the State Budget going back to the House for concurrence or non-concurrence. A non-concurrence vote would result in a Committee of Conference comprised of members from the House and the Senate, typically the final step before a single version of the State Budget returns to both chambers for a vote.

This presentation will review the Senate’s proposed State Budget for State Fiscal Years 2022 and 2023, and discuss key changes from the State’s current operating budget and from the budget proposal passed by the House of Representatives in April.

This presentation will also review the recent guidance provided by the federal government with regard to permissible uses of flexible American Rescue Plan Act funds flowing to the State of New Hampshire.

Date: Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Foundations of Well-Being (for Fundraisers)

Presented by: Association of Fundraising Professionals of Northern New England

Raising money for charitable causes as a development professional can be deeply satisfying, but it can also be exhausting. Many people inside and outside of your organization rely on you. Donations come in when they do. Donors give when they want to. Moves Management is a wonderful theory, but real life rarely follows such a straight line. 

It’s important to have a stable, solid and grounded life to be an effective and long-term development professional. Our challenge is that we’re in a moment when many of the anchors that have held us, the institutions and people we’ve relied on, are not available to us. The worldwide Covid pandemic has upended life as we know it. 

Date: Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 9:00am to 10:30am

What is Cultural Humility and How Can It Help Your Nonprofit?

Presented by: ESC Empower Success Corps

As nonprofit organizations work to incorporate the core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion into their mission and values, cultural humility has become a valuable relationship-building framework on which to build. Cultural humility is “a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique whereby the individual not only learns about another’s culture, but begins with an examination of her/his own beliefs and cultural identities.” (National Institutes of Health) Cultural humility is different from other culturally-based training ideals because it focuses on self-reflection, acknowledges intersecting identities, and encourages continuous learning.

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • The difference between cultural competence and cultural humility
  • How culture impacts an organization
  • Cultural humility skills and how to build them
