Have Your Nonprofit Career and Finance Your Future, Too (Part One)

Lets_Talk_Finances_RECAP.jpg

Many young people enter the nonprofit sector with a strong sense of idealism and the desire to make positive social impact. We also have hopes and dreams outside the office, many of which require money. At times, these parts of us can feel at odds. In YNPN Boston’s 2015 Young Nonprofit Professionals survey, participants reported that the number one reason why they’d leave the nonprofit sector was—no surprise here—low salary and lack of benefits.

We recently kicked off the first event in our Let’s Talk Finances professional development series to explore how we can have successful nonprofit careers and a secure financial future. Boston Security Analysts Society (BSAS) members Firoza Panthaki and Daniel O’Neill led us through an expert presentation on all of our pressing questions about retirement planning. Here’s part one of two of our summary on their advice, with the disclaimer that we are not financial professionals and are not offering endorsement or other opinions on this advice. Look out for part two, which will be published next week.

Not a big surprise -  the nation has been discussing it in earnest for the last year or so (especially since their amazing wins at the Grammys and Tonys). But, in true YNPN Boston fashion, we put our own twist on the topic, and started talking about how the themes of the musical relate to the lives and careers of young nonprofit professionals.
