With the impact of COVID-19 now affecting year-end fundraising, 2021 planning, programming and budgeting, Grassi invites you to hear from leading nonprofit executives on how their organizations and boards are innovating operations and sustaining their missions amid continued uncertainty and disruption.

On November 12, David Rottkamp, Grassi’s Not-for-Profit Practice Leader, will moderate a virtual panel at LI Herald’s Not-for-Profit Summit, featuring:
