The current state of the global economy, capital markets, and laws governing prudent management of charitable funds are making it more challenging than ever to manage and maintain a nonprofit’s mission and desired impact. In light of this, we have assembled a panel of experts in the area of nonprofit law, accounting/reporting, and investment management to address and advise on the most common challenges for nonprofits today.
Our panelists will present insights and advice on the following:
- Managing investment policy in light of lower fundraising
- Resetting investment return expectations in a low-interest-rate environment
- Examining various spending policy models to find what works best for nonprofit management
- Why nonprofits should care about the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act and how it affects their spending policies
- Governance, risk, and compliance: questions you should ask about your organization's endowment management policies

The annual “Women Who Care: A Leadership Breakfast” celebrates the power and influence women have in changing their communities and the world. This breakfast was developed to help educate the public and raise funds for the array of critical programs provided by the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts. The 8th annual breakfast on Sept. 25 will support the variety of ways the Red Cross mobilizes people to help in their communities, across the country, and around the world. This year, the American Red Cross is honored to present the “Women Who Care Humanitarian Award” to Rory and Ethel Kennedy. Our honorees share the Red Cross’ continued commitment of public service to make the world a better place and build a fair and just society.
The breakfast will also include a sneak peek of Ethel, a feature length documentary about the remarkable life of Ethel Kennedy. Directed by her Emmy Award winning daughter, Rory Kennedy, the film features candid interviews with Ethel and seven of her children. The film is scheduled for broadcast on HBO in the fall of 2012.
