In the Time of Coronavirus: Using Data to Chart a Course Through Crisis
May 8 @ 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
While we cannot predict with certainty how the coronavirus crisis will impact the nonprofit sector in Michigan, we can use available data to anticipate where and how the greatest needs and challenges will arise.
The Johnson Center’s Community Data and Research Lab has analyzed information from IRS 990s dating to 2015 to reveal the types of nonprofits that may be most at risk from different financial threats, and which may be in the best positions to weather this storm.
Donna Murray-Brown from the Michigan Nonprofit Association will join the Johnson Center’s Jeff Williams and Tamela Spicer for a conversation exploring how nonprofit leaders and board members can use this data to guide their organizations through the crisis and plan for recovery.
- Learn about the state of nonprofit finances in Michigan heading into the crisis so you can gauge your position
- Why your relationships with board members, staff, partners, and donors are more important than ever — and how you can lean into them even now
- How scenario planning can help you and your organization set priorities and goals for the next several months
- What stories to consider telling about your organization’s strengths and role in combating this crisis and supporting a strong recovery
- Donna Murray-Brown, Michigan Nonprofit Association
- Jeff Williams, Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy
- Tamela Spicer, Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy
