Our Shared Road Ahead—Sandy and Beyond
The Council of New Jersey Grantmakers will again convene its biennial Spring Conference for the Social Sector this June. This year we will explore challenges for the social sector as our state recovers and rebuilds from Hurricane Sandy. Working effectively with local, county and state government; leveraging financial and other assets; and understanding the concept of “patient capital” are just a few of the important topics—meaningful to grantmakers and nonprofits dealing with recovery efforts or not—that will be covered. We will also explore how funders and nonprofits not directly impacted by the disaster can continue to advance their important issues and causes.
We are not in this alone. Join us as we learn from our colleagues who have first-hand experience in post-disaster recovery, and strengthen New Jersey’s already formidable, cohesive social sector.
