financial institutions

Financial institutions play a pivotal role in local economic development and are often keen on supporting initiatives that align with their mission to foster community growth.

Working alongside community banks can open up new avenues for funding, volunteer engagement, and community outreach.

During this TargetED, Alice Ruhnke will help you build relationships with your community banks. You’ll be introduced to the various ways in which partnering with different financial institutions can help your nonprofit access financial resources, gain financial literacy, and leverage local networks to amplify your impact.

You’ll learn:

  • the different types of financial institutions and the pros and cons of working with them;
  • how the Community Reinvestment Act can benefit you;
  • the actions you need to take when researching banks in your community; and,
  • recommended steps to develop, maintain, and grow relationships with your community banks.

Even if you already have banking relationships, this TargetED can help ensure you’re maximizing those relationships.

This session includes 30 minutes of practical teaching and 15 minutes of Q&A. It is ideal for nonprofit leaders including executive directors, financial personnel, and board members who desire to propel their nonprofit to even greater impact by partnering with financial institutions.
