At this session, a follow-up to the July Fundraising Friday about The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and How It Could Impact Your Organization, we are pleased to welcome back Danielle Fleury, Vice President for Government Affairs for the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network. Danielle will provide an ARPA update and further actionable steps to connect with local leaders across the Commonwealth. Joining her will be Jackie Lavender Bird, a Legislative Analyst with the Massachusetts Municipal Association, to speak to the specifics of how municipalities are planning to disburse the funds. The bottom line is that municipalities need your input. In the midst of reopening schools and new booster mandates, they are now tasked with distributing funds to address critical health and economic needs. This session will focus on ways to position your organization to assist with the process.

Fundraising Fridays are monthly hour-long “coffee talks” facilitated by thought leaders from the social sector. These discussion groups, held at 9:00 am the first Friday of each month, are free and open to any and all nonprofit professionals and volunteers interested in fundraising and development issues (EDs, DDs, development staff, volunteer leaders, etc.). Participants will come away with a greater understanding of the topic at hand and connections to nonprofit peers who share similar interests and concerns.
