Event Topic: 
Human Resources

 As capacity builders, we are often called in at last minute (or later) to help organizations get out of a crisis. What are practical realistic steps we can recommend? What are the benchmarks an organization should look at as it climbs out of a crisis? How can you tell whether something is a crisis or an endemic problem? Is it ever too late to help? In this fast paced webinar, Kim Klein will take you through some ways to deal with crises based on her award-wining book, Reliable Fundraising in Unreliable Times. (The book was the McAdams Book Award Winner for 2010!). Klein uses actual examples, formulas and helpful exercises which you can use with your clients to help them survive and even thrive after a crisis.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will: 

  • Understand the difference between a big problem, a full-blown crisis, and an ongoing dysfunctional situation and why it is important to know exactly what you are dealing with 
  • Have a five step process to help clients cope with a crisis, and set a course toward healing and functionality
  • See some examples and be able to think through what they would have done
  • Feel qualified to help nonprofits deal with all kinds of scandals, budget shortfalls and other serious problems

About the Presenter:

Kim Klein is internationally known as a fundraising trainer and consultant. She is a member of the Building Movement Project, and the editor of the Kim Klein Fundraising Series at Jossey-Bass Publishers. She is the author of five books, including Fundraising For Social Change (now in its 6th edition) and Reliable Fundraising in Unreliable Times.

In addition to writing for her own publications, she has contributed many articles to the leading books, periodicals and websites in the field of fundraising. Widely in demand as a speaker, Kim has provided training and consultation in all 50 United States and in 21 countries.

Her work with the Building Movement Project is focused on the role nonprofits need to play in creating fair and just tax policies, and why and how nonprofits can work to protect “the commons”— that which we own in common (parks, libraries, the internet) or that which cannot be owned (clean air, wilderness, fresh water) but must be preserved and passed down to future generations. Kim believes that the nonprofit sector has a critical role to play in the creation and maintenance of a democratic society
