Issachar Summit
Sep

Issachar Summit

What

A day-long exposure to the latest thinking in world evangelization, led by business leaders and ministry pioneers.

Purpose

To accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission by clarifying where resources are most needed.

Who

Sponsored by the Issachar Initiative (www.issacharinitiative.org), a think-tank of missions strategists and Kingdom investors.

Format

Discussion around tables, short but engaging presentations, i.e., the TED conference.

Objective

Inform and challenge every Kingdom donor, church and organization to get more manpower and money to the places where the Church is NOT.

Clarification

This is not a fundraising event. Issachar raises no funds for itself or any specific organization. It advocates on behalf of the unfinished areas of the Great Commission. Attendees will be invited to mobilize more of God’s resources (human and financial) for catalytic Great Commission projects at a later date.

Who Should Attend

The Summit will feature strategic ministry leaders and Kingdom investors. The event will serve Christian leaders from the marketplace, the professions and the ministry, who will be challenged to innovate and collaborate in new, extraordinary ways as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission in our generation.

Maximizing Your 990

Maximizing Your 990

Register at www.990.eventbrite.com

Why?

Form 990 represents a significant public relations opportunity for nonprofits and only those most knowledgeable of the organization are in a position to maximize the form's public relations value.

Two reasons why your 990 matters: 

  • Informs the IRS -- The Form 990 provides the IRS with information about your nonprofit's activities and financial status in order to demonstrate that your nonprofit still meets the qualifications for tax-exemption.
  • Informs the public -- The Form 990 informs the public about crucial aspects of your nonprofit. Potential donors look at an organization's Form 990 before making decisions about charitable giving. 

 

What?

Join other nonprofit leaders in a lunch and learn led by our region's top accounting experts from Barfield Murphy Shank & Smith

Discover how to make your 990 a powerful tool for raising funds and communicating your ministry outcomes to everyone who wants to know!

 

Who?

Key leaders from your nonprofit should attend the Maximizing Your 990 Lunch and Learn:

  • Executive Director
  • Board Chairman
  • Board Treasurer
  • CFO

 

Takeaways?

You will walk away understanding:  

  • Public perception and transparency
  • Basic layout of the core Form 990
  • Key parts of particular importance to board members  
  • Most common errors
  • Hot topics with the IRS
