Everywhere we look — across every sector and every industry — there’s evidence that the old ways of doing things are crumbling.
Damaging patterns behind traditional power dynamics that have guided institutional structures for centuries are beginning to break.
In philanthropy, nonprofit funding models are becoming more decentralized and more democratic than ever. As nonprofits better share financial and governance decision-making with the communities impacted by their work, this inversion of power and depth of meaningful relationships is transforming the sector.
At FORUM 2019: Breaking Patterns, we’ll take a closer look at new approaches to donor-nonprofit relationships. Uvinie Lubecki, founder and CEO of Leading Through Connection, will ground our conversation in how sector leaders are incorporating mindfulness and compassion to bring fundamentally new methods of connection into their work.
We will also look to local leaders, Maria De La Cruz of Headwaters Foundation for Justice and Tuleah Palmer of Northwest Indian Community Development Center, who are reframing the connections between nonprofits and donors right here in Minnesota.
You’ll leave FORUM 2019 with real tips, strategies, and inspiration for deepening meaningful relationships that go beyond habitual patterns of behavior.
