YALE ALUMNI NONPROFIT ALLIANCE (YANA)

Philadelphia’s first YANA Round Table Discussion will feature Graham Finney (Y ’52) discussing strategic planning for non-profits, particularly newly formed organizations or ones needing rejuvenation.

As examples, the planning efforts to revitalize the Friends of the Wissahickon from a stagnant 50-year old low impact organization to a vital force in preserving and restoring this important public park, his involvement with Mastery Charter Schools which encompass 23 schools and “all the big issues facing nonprofits.” Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
