Four Oaks joins Georgetown University’s New Strategies Symposium


Four Oaks and President and CEO Anne Gruenewald are honored to be funded by Alliant Energy to virtually participate in New Strategies, an advanced online training program conducted over four consecutive Wednesdays from March 3-24 by Georgetown University’s Business for Impact. Anne will join a class of 64 nonprofit executives from around the country to participate in New Strategies Symposium specifically designed to help nonprofits increase and diversity their revenue streams.

Executives will learn from leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropy fields, Georgetown business school faculty, and each other on topics ranging from cause marketing, earned revenue, using predictive analytics to increase individual giving levels, deferred and major funding options, virtual fund raising, alliances and mergers, and more. Ongoing access to the expert speakers and networking among the nonprofit executives is a hallmark of New Strategies.

There is no application to apply to New Strategies, so being named by Alliant Energy is itself an honor. Only those nonprofits funded by a corporation or foundation are invited to participate in the program and only after being approved by New Strategies.
