In-depth highlights from Threads Miami

On May 29, 2015, Threads Miami, which was part of a nationwide series of conversations held by the Independent Sector (IS), brought together dozens of leaders from Miami's charitable sector to discuss nine key trends shaping the future of the charitable sector. IS sought to bring awareness to our community about these trends and to start a conversation about how our sector will adapt and react to these trends. IS just released the highlights from our three-hour conversation. In Miami, participants spoke about the need for deeper partnerships among nonprofits, funders, and the community. In sum, there is a desire for "more co-creation."

Threads Miami was held in the historic and light-filled Coral Gables Museum. The need for collaboration with multiple stakeholders – funders, nonprofits, and community – was a major theme throughout the day. Some participants articulated a need for deeper connections that reflect “relational not transactional” relationships and include “more voices” in conversations about solutions and the future. Several participants described nonprofits today as living through a moment when the old model is broken but the new model has not yet emerged. The old model, they said, is characterized by a challenged funding model, lack of capacity, and superficial relationships with community. The group identified several examples of organizations and coalitions that are addressing these issues, for example by leveraging business and government funding, using innovative technology, and developing community leadership.
