Increasing Revenue and Improving Outcomes through Non-traditional Means 
Eccovia Solutions  
Increased emphasis on care coordination and the social determinants of health put Social Service providers under pressure to expand services with limited resources. Social service providers are finding themselves pushed to collaborate with government and healthcare organizations in order to increase revenue and improve client outcomes. In this session you'll learn about the success of three different nonprofit organizations in increasing revenue and improving outcomes through non-traditional means such as collaborating on care coordination with healthcare organizations, establishing self-funded programs, and working with government-funded population health initiatives.

Finance and Development:  Collaboration and a Healthy Tension CliftonLarsonAllen  
A healthy collaboration between development and finance is important to the success of a nonprofit organization.  This session will discuss the friction that can develop between these two departments and how best to communicate financial information to each other and your stakeholders. The session will also address how to integrate the financial and development systems in ways that will benefit both functions.   
Inside the Foundation Board Room: An Interactive Grant Strategy Workshop Elevate  
In this interactive grant writing workshop, YOU become a funder and decide which nonprofits to support. Find out what matters, what doesn't, and how you can  
create successful grants that win! This session also includes how organizations can build successful grant programs. Participants sit at tables that represent different  
foundations. They read 2-3 short proposals, and discuss which to fund. They then share their thinking with the full group. As partners in cultivation and strategic  
grant planning, Elevate and JFCS Philadelphia will co-facilitate this workshop to highlight their experience, process and demonstrated success. Their team approach to identifying funders, developing strategy, attracting institutional philanthropists outside the Jewish community, and submitting winning grant proposals will be of interest to other broad-based social service agencies similarly tasked with identifying and obtaining grant funding that supports a range of programs and populations.
