Event Description

Webinar: Navigating the Financial Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis (A series of three sessions)

Scott Schaffer - Principal, Public Interest Management Group
Nancy Bacon - Principal at Nancy Bacon Consulting and Senior Learning Partner at Washington Nonprofits

Lilisa Hall - Membership, Communications & Advancement Director, Nonprofit Association of Oregon

The current public health crisis has disrupted many nonprofits’ operations and funding sources, with longer-term impacts that remain unknown. Nonprofits face immediate budget impacts and potentially serious threats to sustainability. In this series of three sessions, we will help nonprofit leaders visualize and chart a financial strategy to proactively address the short- and longer-term impacts of the crisis.

This webinar is currently being developed for Oregon’s nonprofits in response to the current COVID-19 crisis. Each session will have a specific topic and will consecutively build from the previous session to create a unified conceptual framework.

Session Titles:

- Session 1: Stop the Bleeding & Define a Process
- Session 2: Lay the Groundwork for a Systematic Response
- Session 3: Build a Flexible Financial Strategy

At the conclusion of the series, participants will have a conceptual framework to respond in a systematic way and clarify a path toward financial sustainability amid uncertainty.

Attendance at all three sessions is requested. If not able to attend all three sessions due to a schedule conflict, please contact

A recording of this webinar will be available to all registered participants.
