As we close out our 2018 programming and look forward to another new year, join us for a conversation with Seth Green and Dorri McWhorter on innovation and entrepreneurship, and what they mean for fundraisers in the nonprofit world.

We frequently talk about the growing desire among philanthropists to maximize social impact. What implications does this trend have on how and where people choose to invest their charitable dollars, and how should fundraisers and nonprofit leaders respond? 

Seth and Dorri will draw from their own experiences leading the Baumhart Center for Social Enterprise and Responsibility at Loyola University Chicago and the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, respectively, to talk about the potential for innovation and entrepreneurship to re-energize both fundraising and impact.

You have to be there to network with the best in Chicagoland fundraising!
