Resources for Media as National Dialogue Launches
Press Release – NEW YORK – May 30, 2017 – An important innovation is happening in the US social sector today – a shift toward an outcomes orientation, in which funding is tied to the ability to demonstrate that high-quality social services produce results for those in need.
On June 5, Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco kick off a nationwide dialogue around outcomes, with publication of a book of expert essays and a series of events with speakers including Linda Gibbs of Bloomberg Associates, Zia Khan of The Rockefeller Foundation, Andrew Plepler of Bank of America, Muzzy Rosenblatt of BRC, and Darren Walker of Ford Foundation.
Launch events take place June 5 in New York, June 13 in San Francisco, and September 12 in Washington, DC. Media interested in attending these events must obtain a confirmed reservation from one of the media contacts listed below by June 2 for New York, June 9 for San Francisco, and August 29 for Washington, DC.
