Having a cash reserve fund is a goal for every nonprofit organization as a buffer for unexpected disruptions, emergencies, or delays in revenue. But there’s much more to consider, especially at a time when nonprofits need more flexibility than ever before. Whether you find yourself with more funds in the bank than expected, or holding your breath until the next payroll, understanding and planning reserve funds is timely. In this webinar, we’ll dig into why reserves are valuable and for what purpose, the perennial question of how much, and some practical tools for managing and communications.
Our region’s students and educators are resilient, but the implications of the disruptions and challenges caused by the pandemic are now coming into focus. According to the 2022 United Way of Central Iowa Community Report, central Iowa’s third-grade reading proficiency scores have dropped 23% and chronic absenteeism has nearly doubled in the past year. Couple these unexpected hurdles with shifts in learning approaches, expectations of the public education system and the evolving needs of our increasingly diverse student population. Our region faces a complex equation we cannot leave unsolved.
Join us for a panel conversation with leaders in education as we reflect on the emerging data trends, hear more about current challenges and explore ideas on how to reimagine systems to help all central Iowa students thrive.
