The Women’s Fund Nonprofit Workshop Series

“The Women’s Fund will present a series of five workshops this year designed to help non-profit leaders make their organizations more sustainable. The workshops will feature presentations on topics that will assist organizations to build capacity. Last year we offered two sessions which were so well received that we decided to increase the number of workshops this year.

We are featuring five dynamic speakers, each of whom will share her expertise about a topic on which she has done significant work in the nonprofit community:

  • November 1: Catherine Raymond, President, Raymond Consulting, Inc.
    • Topic: “Grants 101, Tips for Successful Grants Research, Grant Writing and Grants Management”
  • November 29: Julie Katz, Director of Annual Giving, Miami Children’s Health Foundation

Webinar: Spurring Innovations in Credit Counseling: Lessons from the Smart Growth Innovation Program

*Please note SFCDC is not the organizer of this event.

“Reputable nonprofit credit counseling agencies are available around the country to help consumers worried about unsecured debt. Unfortunately, the nonprofit credit counseling industry is under pressure. Over the past thirty years, regulatory changes, reduced in consumer demand and market competition brought on a wave of consolidations and closures.

To help address these issues, Capital One launched the Smart Growth Innovation Program in 2015. The Program partnered a cohort of credit counseling agencies with Prosperity Now to discover a challenge facing clients, design a set of solutions that might address the challenge, and test the solution to assess its viability.

Please join Prosperity Now for a webinar on Wednesday, July 19 from 3-4:30 pm EDT to learn more about the credit counseling industry and the Smart Growth Innovation Program.

This webinar will feature representatives from Capital One, members of the Prosperity Now Applied Research team and the three nonprofit credit counseling agencies involved in the Smart Growth Project:

  • Clarifi
  • Guidewell Financial Solutions
  • Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota

Join us for this webinar to learn more about innovative ways credit counseling agencies are dealing with challenges facing their clients and their industry!”
