Strength in Numbers Convening: February 2015
The Ms. Foundation for Women’s Strength in Numbers convening provides our grantees with training that highlights financial management and fundraising, helping grassroots organizations develop fiscal practices that sustain their efforts on behalf of women’s issues. Our convening at the Marriott Downtown in New York City from February 2 to February 5 continued this focus, bringing together seven organizations from California to New York to help them learn about these areas, and to begin to build their individual organization’s programs.
The convening opened with a welcome from Ms. Foundation President and CEO Teresa C. Younger and continued with presentations from Fiscal Management Associates on financial management, and Klein & Roth Consulting on fundraising. Grantees participated in workshops that ranged from an introduction to financial management and fundraising, to learning how to choose software and other programs for reporting and tracking funds.
The Strength in Numbers convening was a success, and we thank all of our grantees, Klein & Roth Consulting, and Fiscal Management Associates for contributing to that success!
