Top Nonprofits brings nonprofit experts together for two days as they host the third Virtual Summit for Nonprofit Changemakers September 28 + September 30, 2021. Sector experts will address how nonprofit professionals and their organizations are developing strategies and leading high-impact change. More than twenty speakers will lead sessions that address critical issues facing nonprofits, including organizational culture, development, brand visibility, donor dollars, and the pandemic.

The Nonprofit ChangeMakers Summit features keynote speaker Dorri McWhorter, who became CEO of YWCA Metropolitan Chicago in March 2013 and has driven a transformation from traditional social service organization to 21st Century social enterprise. Central to the evolution has been work across the enterprise and leadership within the nonprofit sector to create efficiencies, improve access to resources, and deepen impact through the expansion of programs and services. YWCA Metropolitan Chicago’s operating budget has grown from $10.5 million in 2013 to an expected $35 million in 2021. As of August 1, 2021, Dorri becomes the President/CEO for YMCA Metropolitan Chicago.

“Dorri McWhorter is a nationally respected ChangeMaker, especially given her leadership in moving the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago from a traditional social services agency with an operating budget of $10.5 million in 2013 to a social enterprise model with a $35 million budget in 2021. Her collaborative nature to leadership, culture and growth through acquisition is the epitome of ‘BETTER TOGETHER’, our theme for the Fall Summit” said Amy DeVita, CEO of Top Nonprofits.
