Small YMCA Networks (Under $2M & $2-$4M)

Are you a staff member or volunteer from a YMCA with a budget size of $2 million or under? Or is your budget in the $2M - $4M range?  Not sure how all of this information at NAYDO can possibly apply to you?  Now there is an easy way to connect staff and volunteers from a Y similar to yours which can provide a powerful tool for your philanthropy efforts.  The NAYDO Council is pleased to offer several opportunities to make networking even easier.

Philanthropy Forum for Small Ys

Thursday, April 26    
3:45 - 5:00 pm

How does all this work in a small Y? NAYDO Council Member Shadra Jenkins, Small Y Network Chair and CEO of the Jackson Area Y in Ohio will facilitate this session where attendees can share what they learned, brainstorm how to implement it back home without the benefit of a development team, and determine at least one action step to focus on. Time will be allotted to discuss ways NAYDO can become more helpful to Small Ys and ways networking started at the conference can continue year round.

SMY Designation on Workshops

Presenters were asked to indicate if their content is applicable to Small and Mid-Size YMCAs often without development staff. Look for SMY in the list of target audiences.
