You're Invited to Join The Patterson Foundation for an Opportunity to Learn, Share and Discuss
At the heart of every nonprofit is its mission, serving to define its reason for being AND to drive decisions leading to increased impact. Recent unanticipated events resulting from COVID-19 have created unprecedented challenges for nonprofits, requiring quick and decisive action in an effort to maintain stability or stay afloat.
The issues run the gamut, encompassing everything from staffing, operations, facilities, and service delivery, to communications, budgeting, financial management, and much more.

Faced with mounting pressure and limited choices, organizations are being forced to make a series of difficult decisions very quickly, with many made through a lens of self-preservation versus one that is squarely focused on mission impact.

Now, as nonprofits continue adjusting to the ever-changing environment, there is an opportunity for Executive Directors / CEO’s, Board Members, and Staffers to connect and explore ways of strengthening their organizations to optimize mission impact and drive thrivability. 

The Patterson Foundation invites you and your colleagues to participate in ADVANCING MISSION THRIVABILITY, a new capacity-building opportunity designed specifically to help strengthen nonprofits in our four-county region. You can read more about this valuable offering in TPF's latest blog.
