On Thursday, October 20th, the Center for Nonprofits & Philanthropy facilitated a panel discussion with OneStar initiative leaders Dinorah Lopez and Veronica Mozzo-Wirr.
Nicole Collier, CNP Research Associate, moderated the panel discussion that covered proven ways to accelerate the impact of nonprofit organizations. Lopez and Mozzo-Wirr uncovered their organization’s approach to strengthening the nonprofit sector in Texas. Both OneStar initiative leaders promoted the importance of digital capacity building, event engagement, and network collaboration. To further promote this idea, Lopez highlighted a quote on the slide deck that read, “If you want to go fast, go alone…if you want to go far, go together.”
Lopez and Mozzo- Wirr summed up their panel experience by sharing, “Participants learned how to accelerate nonprofit impact through four key takeaways: keeping it local, partnership, collaboration, and capacity building.” Dinorah Lopez is the Manager of Nonprofit Strong, and Veronica Mozzo-Wirr is the manager of Volunteer Texas.
