Smart nonprofits are finding ways to adapt to the ‘New Normal.’

Avrum D. Lapin, Director and Senior Partner of the Philadelphia fundraising firm The EHL Consulting Group, will join Dan Brown, the founder of popular philanthropy blog, to host a seminar that explores fundraising ideas for Israel-based organizations seeking to innovate and adapt to an ever-evolving American marketplace. The two experts will discuss the newest trends in global philanthropy, and highlight the techniques that successful nonprofits employ as they plan for future success.

The free seminar, “Adapting to an Evolving U.S. Economy: Charitable Giving and The Fiscal Cliff” will be held on Monday, January 7th from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM at PresenTense Hub, Hillel 14, 4th Floor in Jerusalem, Israel.

“As donors slowly recover from the Great Recession and re-prioritize their personal finances, nonprofit organizations around the world are significantly impacted,” notes Mr. Lapin. “How will the charitable marketplace in the U.S. be impacted by the outcome of the negotiations between the President and Congress around the so-called ‘Fiscal Cliff,’ and what are the implications for Israel-based nonprofits?”

Topics for the presentation will include:

  •     Giving in Response to Possible "Fiscal Cliffs": Learning how factors such as tax breaks, politics, and charitable deduction limitations may impact the scope of giving in 2013...and beyond.
  •     Personalized Donor Pages: Discovering how the most successful nonprofits are leveraging their social media connections to engage new donors online and expand their networks.
  •     Cause vs. Org: Understanding how online "investment models" are changing the way philanthropists identify potential nonprofit partners.

“Smart nonprofits are finding ways to adapt to the ‘New Normal.’ New technologies and techniques are being introduced into the marketplace. Our job is to ascertain if these strategies are working and to help perfect them,” Mr. Lapin concludes.
