While nonprofit organizations operate very differently than their counterparts in the private sector, their growth and success are contingent on a strong financial base. Depending on the size of the organization, each will have its own business model. This workshop provides a high-level introduction to the myriad ways that nonprofits raise funds to support their mission.
This session will introduce crucial but often overlooked, career possibilities in nonprofits for PhDs and features three PhDs from diverse careers in nonprofit strategy and development. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the transferability of their skills as PhDs to the nonprofit landscape, and an overview of helpful resources for strategizing their career in nonprofit resource development and strategy.
