Census 2020: Fundraising for Get Out the Count

Meeting Description:
There are many questions floating around the 2020 Census. Will the citizenship question appear? Will the shift to a digital based questionnaire result in undercounting? Will the Census Bureau be fully prepared by 2020? Nonprofits may be asking themselves "Will my organization participate in Census work? Can we raise money to support our efforts?"
Nonprofit VOTE wants to help nonprofit organizations across the country get to YES on both of those questions. Join us on February 14th for the first of a 2 part series on fundraising and planning for Census 2020. On this webinar we will hear from featured speaker Debbie McKeon from the Council of Michigan Foundations about how to develop relationships with funders, prepare materials, and make an ask to support your Census 2020 work. We'll also have Jay Young from Common Cause IL to their tips and insights for how nonprofits can approach census in a way that works for your organization..
