The world will be dramatically different post-COVID-19. The pandemic is a significant market disruptor that has led to unprecedented levels of innovation in the nonprofit sector. Due to the lockdown, many nonprofits have had to reinvent themselves with a new 'business as unusual' philosophy. Now is the time to redefine results, business models, program delivery strategy, and engagement with donors, clients, and community leaders. Your organization's theory of change drives your redefinition. Every nonprofit's relevancy and value proposition is driven by an adequate theory of change.


Leadership in the new economy will mean more than the ability to raise awareness of problems and money. Now, your organization will have to create a measurable change to be a viable social enterprise. Organizational leaders will have to define a clear direction toward making an impact on complex social problems. We must engage all three sectors in work necessary to achieve outcomes driven by a valid theory of change that everybody, including those we're serving, understands. You can expect a full briefing on how to create a theory of change and a discussion on the "reboot" of the independent sector. 


Cost: $60 members, $80 non-members

Instructor: Mark Brewer, President/CEO, Central Florida Foundation

Central Florida Foundation believes in the power of philanthropy and that thoughtful strategies, combined with a generous community, make Central Florida a place where everyone feels at home. The Foundation works with families focused on giving back, nonprofits and across public and private sectors to bring philanthropy to life. It all began in 1994 as a dream around a table of local, passionate people, and has grown to be one of the community’s most trusted resources.

Mark joined the Foundation in 2000 and has earned respect for his ability to build community partnerships that meet issues head-on and produce measureable results. He has worked with hundreds of individuals, families, and corporations to establish philanthropy plans, endowments, funding strategies, and planned gifts. More than 100 regional nonprofit boards have enlisted Mark’s assistance through the Foundation with strategic and scenario planning initiatives that included the use of endowed investments to sustain their organizations. He is a well-known national speaker on the independent sector, philanthropy’s role in America, venture philanthropy strategies, and the role of the independent sector in public policy. In his leadership role at the Central Florida Foundation, Mark frequently advises private and corporate foundation grant makers across the region, and plays a public policy advisory role on strategy and advisory boards around the state of Florida.

Mark began his career in the media as a reporter, anchor, and journalist. His background includes more than a decade as a management consultant in the private and independent sectors, leading merger and acquisition strategies for cross-sector initiatives. Later, as a licensed investment professional, he assisted clients with estate and planned giving strategies. Mark holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, a Master’s Degree in Public Administration with a specialty in Nonprofit Management, is a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy ®, and is ABD for a PhD in Public Administration with a specialty in Policy and Law from Walden University.
