More than ever before, the people on the front lines of social change are in agreement: we need to evolve the conversation about nonprofit overhead.

The good news is that the evolution has already begun. Forward-looking leaders from across the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors have realized the importance of moving beyond overhead ratios. But what role can nonprofits play in articulating the on-the-ground impact of funding that falls short of full program cost?

Join us on March 23 for the third in our series of webinars about overhead. In this installment, nonprofit practitioners intimately familiar with the challenges nonprofits face will share their insight on how to change the conversation about overhead.

Joining us for this event are: Ann Goggins Gregory (COO of Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco), Dominique Bernardo (CFO of Congreso de Latinos Unidos), and Vu Le (Executive Director of Rainier Valley Corps and Author of

Together, we’ll discuss:

  • What does managing overhead expectations look like when dealing with government contracts?
  • What questions should a nonprofit ask when considering whether to accept funding with challenging overhead implications?
  • How can nonprofits use full program cost analysis internally, as well as in conversations with funders?
  • How can nonprofits make short- and long-term decisions regarding funding overhead restrictions?
  • How can nonprofits communicate the on-the-ground implications of unfunded overhead and shift the funder focus to full program funding?
