Fiscal Literacy for Non-Profit Organizations

The Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) invites you to attend Fiscal Literacy for Non-Profit Organizations with Tammy Saben of Glivinski and Associates on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 9:00 am.

Nonprofit fundraisers have a passion for their organization’s mission, but sometimes lack familiarity with financial reports, cash flow or how to be the best stewards of hard earned funds. The intent of this workshop is to increase financial literacy by reducing the mystery of nonprofit budgets, financial reports and audits which may help you and your organization to implement best business practices and more transparent reporting to better fulfill your mission..

This event is FREE to attend with advance registration for current PPCI members; and $10 per person for non-members. To attend this event, please register online via the link below.

Virtual Events for Nonprofits

The Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) invites you to attend Virtual Events for Nonprofits with Chris Schultz of New Latitude Event Solutions and Amanda Kaiser of EforAll Cape Cod on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at 9:00 am.

WHAT’S NEXT? With the COVID vaccine distribution underway and a return to normal life on the horizon, many organizations are struggling with how to connect with their audiences in a safe way until the distribution is complete. Most models show that it will be at least Fall of 2021 before life will begin to return to normal. ZOOM fatigue is a real thing. So how can you stay relevant and engaged?

Chris will discuss the benefits (and some of the tricks) to using the zoom platform that will help event novices look like seasoned pros. He will explore how to effectively take an event from the virtual to the hybrid arena and the associated costs and benefits of making the leap.

Amanda will explain how her organization pivoted to virtual events, the different tools used, and lessons learned. She will also share thoughts on incorporating virtual events in the future.

This event is FREE to attend with advance registration for current PPCI members; and $10 per person for non-members. To attend this event, please register online via the link below.

2021 Annual Meeting with Vu Le

The Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) is thrilled to welcome Vu Le, nationally recognized speaker and author of the popular blog Nonprofit AF, as the keynote speaker at the upcoming Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 12:30 pm.

Join Vu in this virtual presentation as he shares his candid, humorous approach to nonprofit work-the good, the bad, and the ugly-while also celebrating the power of the sector.

A Time for Boldness: Equity, Unrestricted Funding, and How to Unlock Our Full Awesomeness!

During these challenging and tumultuous times, nonprofits have played a vital role. We are as essential as air. While the pandemic and society’s reckoning with systemic racism brought about some changes in our sector, we still have many philosophies and practices that are archaic and ineffective. These include the idea of restricted funds, the nonprofit hunger games, the concept of self-sustainability, and the way we do fundraising and advance equity. It is time for nonprofit and philanthropy to let go of some things, embrace some new ideas, and get others to come along. Get ready to be entertained, challenged, and provoked.

This event is FREE to attend with advance registration for current PPCI members; and $25 per person for non-members. To attend this event, please register online via the link below. Deadline for registration is Tuesday, January 26th.

Register to attend January 28th Meeting

About Our Speaker: Vu Le

Vu LeVu Le (“voo lay”) is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the former Executive Director of RVC, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities.

Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a show about nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.

Known for his no-BS approach, irreverent sense of humor, and love of unicorns, Vu has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts at NonprofitAF.com, formerly nonprofitwithballs.com.

Join us online Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. to learn what is happening with Sponsorships on Cape Cod during the pandemic.

So many of us on the Cape & Islands depend on sponsorships from our local businesses for essential fundraising revenue. Sponsorships provide our organizations with an important revenue stream, while also offering unique marketing opportunities for the business. How will this change when we cannot hold in-person events? What are our sponsors looking for in terms of marketing benefits? Is this the right time to solicit sponsorships?

Then we will break into small groups to discuss your own experiences, issues, and questions. This is the third session in the series Fundraising During Crisis.

This event is FREE to attend with advance registration for current PPCI members; and $10 per person for non-members. To attend this event, please register online via the link below. Deadline for registration is Monday, September 14th, 2020.
