Last year was perhaps THE most difficult year for nonprofit organizations (as well as businesses) and projections are that anywhere from 11-38% of nonprofits may go out of business or merge with other organizations within the next three years, as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Take a listen to this interview to discover how one woman is making life a little easier for nonprofits…

Sevetri Wilson is CEO of Resilia, a company she formed in 2016 that has served thousands of nonprofits with her tech company.

Watch our interview as I ask Ms. Wilson:

  1. How does what you’re doing at Resilia make life easier for nonprofits?
  2. What lessons have you learned in 2020 that could benefit nonprofits in 2021?
  3. What is on the horizon in 2021 for your business, Resilia? What are your goals for this year?

And of course we chat about other really relevant topics including:

  • how to engage nonprofit Boards to help with fundraising
  • collaborating with funders
  • and how to position your grants for funding in 2021!
