NotleyEDU Webinar: Nonprofit Scenario Planning in COVID-19
presented by the Monitor Institute by Deloitte 

OCT 8, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

You'll Walk Away With:

  • Greater clarity on what scenario planning is and how it can help your organization
  • Insight into how other social sector leaders are thinking about the future
  • Tools and resources to help you push beyond your organization’s “expected future”


The COVID-19 pandemic has created an environment of hyper-uncertainty for organizations in the social sector, as the economic crisis has weakened funders and nonprofits even as the demand for their assistance is skyrocketing. Many funders and nonprofits have completed their initial round of emergency response to the crisis, but they are struggling to contemplate what they should do next.

To help nonprofit leaders confront this challenge, the Monitor Institute by Deloitte is using the tools of scenario planning—the well-tested methodology for thinking about the future pioneered by Deloitte’s Global Business Network group—to help both funders and operating nonprofits get on their front foot in preparing for the landscape on the other side of the COVID-19 crisis. 

While it’s impossible to predict the future, this webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of the tools that can help them think about the critical uncertainties of the moment, reckon with the new “certainties” emerging from the pandemic, and think about how their strategies might (or might not) fit the different possible futures that may emerge in the coming months and years ahead.
