Our Breakfast Learning Series is an exclusive opportunity for those belonging to Donors Forum -- grantmakers, operating nonprofits, and advisors -- to do a quick dive into mutual topics of interest in an informal, networking-friendly atmosphere. The series will include panel discussions, short lectures, mini-workshops, and facilitated talks on a wide variety of topics. Join us on the last Wednesday of each month for coffee, conversation, and a culture of shared knowledge. Light refreshments will be served.
About this workshop: The work of environment organizations has value. Almost $685 million is invested in over 184 Illinois social impact organizations that do work affecting Illinois’ land, air, and waterways. Ninety-three percent of that investment comes from government, and the rest from private sources like foundations and individuals who care about our environment. What does this investment in Illinois’ air, land, and water yield? As part our Social Return on Investment research, Donors Forum has released The Value of the Environment Sector.
Come to learn about what’s in this report, discuss how you can use the information to tell your own story, and hear about the true value of environmental work in our state. Delia Coleman, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Donors Forum, will lead this discussion. This session will be useful for both funders and practitioners in the field.
