Leave A LegacyÂ© hosts some of the nationâ€™s top thought leaders at a Leadership Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, geared to helping local charities explore entrepreneurial strategies to improve their effectiveness and bottom line, from noon to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16 at Akerman Senterfitt, One SE Third Ave., 25th Floor.
The half-day leadership seminar will examine how non-profits can adopt the philosophies of successful social entrepreneurs to transform their organizations and how they serve the community.
Non-profit leaders in South Florida contend the different approach will ensure the success and growth of more community organizations. In the past year, the number of non-profit groups in Florida doubled. Their success is critical to the communityâ€™s ability to overcome recent economic challenges.
â€œAbout 76% of all revenues generated by non-profits come from program services. This means non-profit leaders should, and in many cases, need to change their approach and adopt entrepreneurial and innovative business strategies to thrive, and even to survive,â€ said Glenn Kaufhold, chair of Philanthropy Miami, and president of GKollaborative, consultants to non-profits.
The Leadership Forum is part of Leave A Legacyâ€™s Philanthropy Miami, a two-part conference on successful trends and practices in non-profit management. The second part of the conference is planned for Tuesday, March 20 at Jungle Island, 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail in Miami. It features two separate tracks: Fundraising Basics, an intensive overview for those new to development and Toolkits, geared to those who have more experience in the field. Toolkits will showcase strategies non-profits can use to increase their donations and the number of ongoing supporters.
Philanthropy Miami is sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; SunTrust Foundations and Endowments Specialty Practice; Baptist Health South Florida Foundation; United Way of Miami-Dade; and Wells Fargo.
