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. He will describe his experience in developing strategic plans and getting board-level buy-in for action. 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.
The third and final exhibition of the Society’s remarkable collection of Jefferson’s materials focuses on his life-long quest to preserve Indian languages, now a mission of the Society. You’ll see amazing maps of Indian villages in the local vicinity, view an early 19th Century spreadsheet, and follow the linguistic interest in native peoples through two centuries of cultural oppression and ultimate renewal. A guided tour, lecture, and reception.
