Nonprofit Lunch and Learn: Ron Wolf
SOURCE hosted another successful Nonprofit Lunch and Learn on February 8th. Ronald Wolff—an expert in nonprofit consulting and grant writing—led a fruitful discussion on all things fund development. Wolff acknowledged the vast opportunities available for nonprofits, and emphasized the importance of strategically pursuing these commonly overlooked opportunities. In order to fully maximize these opportunities, he urged the nonprofits in attendance to first evaluate the critical needs and then determine the subsequent “tools” necessary to satisfy these needs. During his interactive workshop, Wolff provided helpful insights on topics ranging from grant writing to events planning. Additionally, he provided tips on guiding individual donors up to higher levels of the “giving ladder.” An important step of this process is properly thanking and following-up with donors. The Lunch and Learn was a great opportunity for local nonprofits to engage with one another and with the SOURCE team.
