    Join The Nonprofit Partnership for "Procrastinators Unite! Last-Minute Strategies for Year-End Giving" with Bloomerang on Thursday, November 30, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Webinars are a great educational tool for the workplace. You can learn from experts and industry leaders from across the country without ever having to leave the comfort of your office chair. But what’s the one drawback to a webinar? We are often alone at our desks, learning from a distant voice with little chance to actively engage with the speaker or our peers.

    The Nonprofit Partnership wants to fix that.

    Our series, Webinars on Walnut, creates an opportunity for nonprofit professionals to come together, enjoy a coffee, learn from experts around the country, and share perspectives and questions with those around the table.

    Please note - this session will take place in person at The Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Transformational Philanthropy! After the webinar, there will be moderated discussion among attendees.

    WEBINAR: "Procrastinators Unite! Last-Minute Strategies for Year-End Giving" with Bloomerang!

    From the host:

    It's the end of November...so what are you doing for year end giving? If you're in a panic because you neglected to plan for the next 31 days, it's not too late! We'll talk about key things to maximize your fundraising that you can still do now.

    Here is what you will learn by participating in this webinar:

    • identify action steps for a last minute year end plan
    • identify at least one low- or no-cost tactic to implement before December 31
    • develop a checklist to avoid last minute planning for next year!

    The health care debate in our nation’s capital seems to be a never-ending discussion. And while the debate rages on, the needs of nonprofits to plan for the future and provide the best health insurance solutions for their staff is immediate and ever-present.

    Join The Nonprofit Partnership and Greg Deemer, President of Bayfront Benefit Solutions, to learn about the available health care options for your organization & staff. Greg will walk you through the basics of group health insurance vs. individual plans and the outlook of the health insurance renewal season. He will also briefly touch upon Medicare and answer your inquiries.

    If you are planning for a new fiscal year, have questions, or just don’t know where to start, join Greg and NPP as we explore this important issue.

    The learning objectives for this session include:

    1. Gain an understanding of the difference between group health plans and individual health plans; walk away from the session with an inkling towards which is best for your nonprofit
    2. Learn what is upcoming on the horizon of the health insurance renewal season and feel better prepared to face the imminent future of health insurance
    3. Get your questions answered and learn from others

    This session is appropriate for nonprofit HR professionals, Executive leadership, and those with their hand in the health insurance pot of the organization.

    The workshop lies between beginner and intermediate. Greg will answer questions of a wide sphere but a basic understanding of the health insurance realm is necessary.
