United Ways of Northern and Southern Nevada, Moonridge Group Philanthropy Advisors and the CEO Exchange invite you to join us to celebrate all we have accomplished during Nonprofit & Philanthropy Day at the Legislature on Monday, March 29, 2021!
During the COVID-19 pandemic, community and philanthropic leaders mobilized quickly to meet the changing needs of our state. Nonprofit & Philanthropy Day at the Legislature will celebrate all that we have accomplished together and show the value of our work to support Nevadans in need in our communities. By demonstrating our impact as a sector, we hope to engage legislators in supporting our work in the long-term and building our strength as a sector.
With the closure of the Nevada State Legislature to the public, Nonprofit & Philanthropy Day at the Legislature will be a fully virtual event, meaning organizations from across the state can participate in this important event. We’ve created several activations for you to get involved and show your gratitude to our elected officials.
1. We hope you will participate in our social media efforts on Monday, March 29. During the day, please post thank you messages, photos, videos, etc. sharing how collaboration between nonprofits, philanthropists, legislators and government officials is driving long-term change, both before and during COVID-19. Be sure to tag your legislator on their official accounts. See the full social media toolkit here.
2. Please join us in sending messages of gratitude to legislators! See a draft email here to send to your representatives. We ask that these be messages of gratitude, rather than an ask for support, as this day is only a starting point for long-term growth in the philanthropic sector. You can visit the Who’s My Legislator website to find your legislators.
3. Join us during Nonprofit & Philanthropy Day at the Legislature for a jolt of optimism and hope to start your week! There are two sessions to join:
Tune in to the "Reflections on 2020: Achieving Collective Impact to Meet Nevada’s Needs Statewide" presentation on Monday, March 29, 2021 at 7 am to learn how communities across the state came together across the private, nonprofit and public sectors to collaborate on meeting rapidly emerging needs throughout our response to the dual public health and economic crises. The session will be live-streamed to Facebook Live at facebook.com/UnitedWaySN.
Join the CEO Exchange on Monday March 29, 2021 at 12 pm for an engaging and informative briefing on the vital role the nonprofit sector plays to improve the lives of Southern Nevadans. The CEO Exchange is a collaboration of Southern Nevada’s nonprofit presidents and CEOs who work together to preserve and strengthen the safety net in areas like food security, housing stability, early childhood and youth development, transportation, domestic violence, and workforce development.
