Tonight: The Lean Years

Tonight, Natan and the Samuel Bronfman Foundation will host a discussion called “The Lean Years”. The program will consist of four presentations from experts in various fields, who will offer different perspectives on the current economic crisis and how it might affect small entrepreneurial non-profits. They will be joined by a veteran of corporate philanthropy & consultant to several foundations; a professional fundraiser who has worked in various capacities in the Jewish community; a portfolio manager and venture capital research director; and a financial institutions expert from a major consulting company.

At the end of the program, there will be a brief period for question and answers.

The program will also be available live on JTA’s Fundamentalist blog from 6:00-8:30pm (EST). For more information, or for those viewing online and wishing to submit questions in advance, email: theleanyears [at]

update: A video recording of the discussion is now available.

Thanks to Felicia Herman (Natan) and Ariel Groveman Weiner (The Samuel Bronfman Foundation) for putting this all together.
