LACF: Nonprofit Training Aug. 16

LACF News:

The Los Alamos Community Foundation announces it’s next nonprofit training event: “Breaking Away from Conventional Charity: Social Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Impact” by CEO Jeff Snell of the International Folk Art Alliance.

The International Folk Art Alliance is the Santa Fe non-profit that produces the annual International Folk Art Market. The Market has worked with more than 900 artisans from around the world, generating $31 million in artist earnings to sustain local economies through social enterprise models.

Throughout his career, Snell has worked to promote social innovation across the nonprofit sector. He looks forward to discussing the ways in which this model can be effectively utilized to improve an organization’s work, and make it less dependent upon traditional fundraising. Jeff promises an engaged discussion on this thought-provoking topic.

Often defined as the blurring of the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, the concept of social entrepreneurship helps nonprofits think differently about their revenue streams, and set themselves up for sustainable social impact.
