When the stock market crashed in the fall of 2008, many nonprofit managers across the country responded by freezing all new hiring. As a result, Idealist.org, which had been traditionally supported by revenue from nonprofit employment ads, saw a sharp decline in its income. Facing some very hard choices, Idealist decided to try something different, something risky. Join us for a discussion with Idealist’s Executive Director Ami Dar about what the organization did when faced with a financial crisis, what worked for them, and how you might be able to apply those lessons to your own work. Attendees sent in questions ahead of time and joined us for a lively discussion.
