As COVID-19 has impacted every community across the globe, nonprofits have faced increasing demand for their services despite declining resources. Amid the crisis, there have been increased calls for nonprofits to tap into reserves, with endowments, donor-advised funds and donor-restricted funds all being discussed as possible funding sources to meet urgent needs. Academic and nonprofit leaders from John Carroll University, Indiana University and the University of Pittsburgh will discuss the costs and benefits of tapping reserves, the calls for additional federal requirements on nonprofit spending, and practical considerations that all nonprofits should address before opening the spigot on reserve funds.
This webinar is a collaboration between: Fisher College of Business, Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, John Carroll University College of Arts and Sciences and University of Pittsburgh School of Law
Moderator: : Brian Mittendorf, Fisher Designated Professor of Accounting and Senior Associate Dean for Staff, Human Resources and Culture at Fisher College of Business
