TEMPO Talks: Show Your Support - Lessons Learned from Three Nonprofit Leaders
Panel discussion with Patti Gorsky (Make-A-Wish Wisconsin), Gerry Howze (PEARLS For Teen Girls) and Linda Benfield (United Way Board)

As the entire world seeks to reimaging itself after COVID-19, so too must our nation look to reimagine the ways in which we fund, fuel and support the most vulnerable amongst us and the organizations that serve them. Throughout Milwaukee, nonprofit leaders have been forced to reimagine program delivery, fundraising efforts, donor outreach, while still continuing to fight for the needs of those they serve. In this TEMPO Talks session, we will hear the difficult and challenging lessons learned of three nonprofit leaders as well as their ability to adjust, engage in a virtual new normal and highlight their strengths to uniquely deliver their value.  Patti Gorsky, Make-A-Wish, will share her team’s success in pivoting to a virtual fundraising event in a matter of weeks. Gerry Howze, PEARLS for Teen Girls, will share her organization’s response and being one of the last fundraising events to be held in-person before the COVID-19 quarantine. Finally, we will hear from Linda Benfield, who serves as Board Chair of United Way to provide the perspective of a Board’s role during a crisis.
