Effective Advocacy Workshop Planned

The Southern Illinois Community Foundation (SICF) invites representatives of non-profit organizations throughout the region to a workshop on Effective Advocacy, presented by The Donors Forum of Illinois.  The Workshop will take place at John A. Logan College in Carterville on February 24, 2014 from 9:30am to 12:30pm.  Registration is free and lunch is included.  Please contact Janice at the SICF office 997-3700 or email her at janice@sicf.org.
Some things to think about:
Did you know that the Illinois non-profit sector is home to:
*14,000 charitable nonprofits that employ
*Over 500,000 nonprofit employees which
*Represents 1 in 10 of the tax-paying employees in the state of Illinois and
*Is the 4th largest employment sector in Illinois, with a
*Combined payroll of $19.7 billion in Illinois (or 8.8% of the state’s employment) and
*Contributes $1.5 billion in Illinois payroll taxes and
*Contributes $2.3 billion in federal taxes.
As federal and state support for the charitable work being done in our communities keep shrinking, non-profit leaders need to work together to articulate how the work they are doing benefits the whole community.
Please join your community foundation and regional non-profit professionals in welcoming and participating in this Donors Forum Advocacy Workshop.  Again, contact Janice at the SICF office 997-3700 or email her at janice@sicf.org.
