Financially Empowering Your Organization

Jerr Boschee

“This is the most evil thing I’ve ever heard.”

That was some years ago. Today, the reaction to Boschee’s approach to marrying mission and money is much more positive. Now, far more people want to spend time learning how to do this rather than arguing whether or not to do it. And learn they will.

This presentation showcases Boschee’s understanding of the intricacies of social entrepreneurship, augmented by his warm and humorous delivery style. The end result is a powerful lesson in making good things happen for good organizations.
