Lessons We Learned from 2020

Since we launched our webinars as resources for our profession during the pandemic, we have seen nationally and first-hand encouraging support in philanthropy. The lessons from 2008 are different from today because we are seeing high levels of donor support. This webinar demonstrates how donors are giving and how you as an organization can rest, grow, and thrive as a result of their generosity. 

Join Tim Winkler Winkler Group CEO, Jim Bush Winkler Group President, and Mary Downey Community Hope Center CEO as they discuss and provide live data on the philanthropic landscape during 2020’s pandemic.  This webinar was conducted in partnership with AFP Central Florida.
