Whether your foundation just topped $1 million or $1 billion in assets, you probably experience the same challenge when it comes to communications: Not enough capacity. Sometimes you just can't do it all. This webinar will feature essential storytelling tips, highlight creative ways to repurpose your existing work and show you how to efficiently use downtime to stock a pantry full of useful ingredients to tell the right story when you're crunched for time. And for those times you have some financial flexibility, we'll talk about how to find the right consultant to help you finally move that back-burner project out onto the table. This webinar is hosted by the Council of Michigan Foundations.

Target Audience:

The Tri-State Community Foundation Partnership webinars are designed for, but not exclusive to, community foundation staff and board members and is a partnership between Indiana Philanthropy Alliance/GIFT, Council of Michigan Foundations, and Philanthropy Ohio.
