Building Financial Equity

From surviving to thriving

Monday, October 22, 2:00pm – 3:15pm

Salon 4

Organized and moderated by Glyn Northington, senior program director, Propel Nonprofits; and Janet Ogden-Brackett, vice president, Propel Nonprofits.

Presented by Janet Ogden-Brackett, vice president, Propel Nonprofits.

What happens when nonprofit arts organizations, which have always lived in a world of scarcity, suddenly have the cash, expertise, and confidence to dream? Eighteen months ago, Propel Nonprofits started a three-year pilot with five arts organizations dedicated to strengthening their financial position and muscle so they can grow as cultural institutions. We’ll share what we learned, what worked, and what didn’t, what we’ve changed, and what our arts partners have taught us about the power of moving from surviving to thriving.
