Presented by Steve McCoy-Thompson, Executive Director of the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation

This special lunch and learn event hosted by the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at JFKU will feature Steve McCoy Thompson, Executive Director of Pleasanton Partners in Education (PPIE), discussing the mechanics of creating a successful virtual 5K run and other virtual events. The discussion will be moderated by SIP instructor Susan Houghton, CFRE.

The pandemic has created enormous challenges and opportunities for non-profit organizations. Virtual engagement with donors and supporters is becoming the norm. But how do we navigate this transition? PPIE recently transitioned from a large community run to a virtual race, from an in-person business-to a student program to a virtual engagement, and from asking businesses for support to supporting them during this difficult time (as a way to build long term relations). We will discuss lessons learned and plans for the future in this changing world.

Steve McCoy-Thompson is Executive Director of the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation (PPIE) and has worked for 25 years at the nexus of business, government, and the nonprofit sector. Join us to hear from Steve and gain crucial insight into your virtual strategy!
