Upcoming Events

Travel and Airport Restrictions During COVID-19


Event Description

International NGOs based in the U.S. rely on travel to support staff in the Global South, connect with partners, and for service delivery to people around the world. So what happens when airports around the world are shut down and travel restrictions are in place due to a pandemic? How can NGOs get up-to-date information about travel in the regions they serve? How can NGOs plan for future travel later this year?

Contingency Planning for Fundraising


Event Description

Fundraising plans are critical to non-profit organizations. However, given the current COVID 19 pandemic we may need to rethink those plans. While the future is uncertain, nonprofit organizations can still be strategic and thoughtful in their approach to fundraising. How can global nonprofits be nimble in this ever-changing environment?  How do we shift gears to set and achieve funding goals? How should we plan for the summer and fall 2020? Should nonprofit organizations cut back on programs now in anticipation of a funding shortfall?

Pamela Oaks
