    2016 Spirit of Philanthropy Awards

    Are you looking for a great way to recognize that exceptional supporter who goes beyond the call for your organization, or show a member of your development team that he/she deserves to be recognized for his or her passion and dedication?  Why not honor them with a Spirit of Philanthropy Award?  The award was created in 1991 to provide charitable organizations the opportunity to honor someone within or close to their organization who truly exemplifies the “spirit of philanthropy”.  These awards will be presented at the Philanthropy Leadership Awards Luncheon along with the Annual Leadership Awards.


    The Celebration of Philanthropy Leadership Awards Luncheon is Wednesday, November 9, 2016.  The annual awards ceremony and event serve to recognize and celebrate Arizona’s finest fundraisers, volunteers, philanthropists, and corporations who serve our community through their dedication of resources, time and generosity.

    Can your database really help you raise more money? The expert opinion is that it depends on a number of factors. Understanding these factors and the difference they can make is huge for any organization. Having a database that raises money requires strategical thinking, planning and rigorous implementation. Whether your database is small or large, clean or messy, making the data work for you is critical. Spend 75 minutes and walk away with a plan to create a remarkable database.

    August Brown Bag Lunch & Learn

    The Basics of Social Enterprise

    Today’s social service marketplace is increasing complex.  The regulatory environment is constantly changing, and government support continues to shrink. There are limits on how high fees can be raised.  The philanthropic market is increasingly competitive.  At the same time, you must serve more families in need!  

    In the right situation social enterprise can add value to your organization and your community while positively impacting your bottom line.

    Social enterprises are businesses whose primary purpose is the common good.  They use methods and disciplines of business and the power of the marketplace to advance their social, environmental, and human service agendas and positively impact their financial bottom line.  

    Learn how your nonprofit organization can evaluate if social enterprise is the right option for you and hear from the experiences of your peers.

    Participants will learn:

    • How do you develop a social enterprise program?
    • How do you implement a social enterprise?
    • How do you evaluate its effectiveness?
    • How do you help it to grow?
    • How do you create a dialog for your organization to consider if the time is right to create a Social Enterprise?
    • Who should attend: Any organization considering entering into the social enterprise arena.
