Leveraging Community Assets to Enhance Your Nonprofit's Impact
Event Category 

Assets and strengths, not deficits and needs, are the true building blocks of healthy communities. ​Every individual, association, and institution has assets that can contribute to community well-being and justice. Through trust-based philanthropy and participatory grant making, nonprofits and grant makers are evolving how they work. But it is also important to recognize that the communities themselves are filled with unutilized assets. 

In this webinar, we will learn the basic principles and practices of asset-based community development, and how they can enhance the work we do in the nonprofit sector. We will explore what it means to have an abundant mindset, including an introduction to asset mapping and discovering how the social sector can work in communities using the power of gift-centered practices. 

Qualifies for 1.5 CFRE points.
