Partnerships & Collaboration

Let Us Be the Light

Jeanne C. Tedrow, President & CEO, North Carolina Center for Nonprofits

2021 truly began with a jolt. The attempted coup by insurrectionists on our nation's capital stunned many of us. Those elected to serve were in the crossfire and some were meant to be the target of this violence. In the aftermath of the 2020 fair and free election naming President Elect Joseph Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris to be duly sworn in on January 20, our country is divided and the peaceful transition of power has been compromised.

Pandemic Recovery and Public-Private Partnerships

With program demands and financial stresses on nonprofits likely to increase in 2021, how can public and private partnerships work better together to support fragile nonprofit operations and disrupted service delivery systems caused by COVID-19?  How can they complement and leverage each other’s resources to strengthen nonprofits’ capacity to continue to deliver vital services? This workshop will explore the opportunities and challenges of these partnerships to support the nonprofit sector in the new world order.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Agility at Work

There are different ways to be emotionally intelligent, and different situations call on us to be “agile” in our emotional intelligence, i.e. adapting to the social or emotional situation to solve the problem at hand. But sometimes we reach for the same responses out of habit, even when the situation begs us to rethink our approach. This type of reaction leaves people and organizations resistant and unprepared to solve the dynamic and diverse challenges that come our way.

Adding Equity to Nonprofits

Most children born into poverty in NC won’t reach the state’s median income as adults, according to MDC. In studies by Harvard University and University of California-Berkley, Durham and Wake counties rank in the lowest 6% of counties in the country in upward mobility. A child of color or low income has a better chance of getting ahead in Queens or Oakland than in Raleigh or Durham. Why? Many organizations are working on obvious intentional racism and classism causes, such as redlining, slavery, and voter suppression.

Looking Ahead: Nonprofit Fundraising and Development

Alyson Stoffer, Director of Development, TLC and President, AFP Triangle

Eight months ago, I became a new director of development. The timing was great. I had a month and a half under my belt at the beginning of a pandemic where the next days and months were certain and manageable. Just in time to start putting together my first budget, inclusive of what to do about our organization’s largest source of philanthropic dollars: in-person events. Everything was fine.
