Working in philanthropy isn’t for the faint of heart. Donor hopes and organizational expectations can sometimes be at odds and the fundraiser is right in the middle. Bring your questions and those you might be “asking for a friend” and engage in a spirited conversation led by Dr. Alicia Schatteman, director of the center for nonprofit and NGO studies at Northern Illinois University. Let’s navigate the many shades of gray together.
Alicia Schatteman is the current director of the Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies and an associate professor of nonprofit management in the Department of Public Administration in the School of Public and Global Affairs. She received her Ph.D. in public administration from Rutgers University-Newark and a master’s degree in communications management from Syracuse University. She also consults and conducts research in nonprofit strategic planning and performance measurement. Prior to returning to school for her Ph.D., she worked for 10 years in the public and nonprofit sectors as a communications specialist and then an executive director.
