Understand Philanthropy in Southern Arizona to Support Your Fundraising Goals

Stephanie La Loggia will help us examine the "pie of philanthropy" in Southern Arizona: how much comes from individual donors, grantmaking organizations (foundations and grantmaking public charities) and volunteers.
Among the questions discussed and answered will be:
• What causes are supported?
• How much money stays in Southern Arizona?
• How much comes in from outside the area?
• How much value is added by volunteers?
• How can we grow the pie?
Stephanie will share how this information can be utilized by organizations and fundraising professionals in their work to locate and channel resources toward vital community services and solutions. She will also demonstrate how to use the ASU Lodestar Center’s free Scope of the Sector report to drill down to Pima County giving statistics to inform your fundraising. This presentation is based research conducted by the ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation.

Stephanie La Loggia is the Manager of Knowledge Resources for the ASU Lodestar Center.

Registration for this event is required. Register for this event online or call 520-791-4010

Find Your Roots - Discover Your Family Tree

October is Family History Month so it's the perfect time to explore your family history. There's no better way to get started than with help from this Pima County Genealogy Society's introduction to genealogy workshop.

In this workshop we will examine the reasons for starting the family history search, and the resources available at home, the internet, and across the country. We will go on to discuss charts for presenting the information you uncover, and local libraries that have volunteers to aid your searching.

The presentation will also include a realistic case study and will demonstrate the step-by-step process of tracking down information about a particular ancestor.

Read to a Dog

Children are invited to read to a Certified Therapy Dog. One of the favorite things for the dog to do is listen to children read lots of stories. Reading to a dog or other pet can help new and reluctant readers gain confidence, increase important reading skills, and develop a love of reading.

Find out more about Read to a Dog.
