Sustainable Funding

A Workshop for Nonprofits

The path to financial sustainability, and ultimately impact, is fraught with funding peaks and troughs for nonprofits. Can you hire new staff, invest in technology, or are you trying to simply keep the lights on? We’re here to fix the broken nonprofit funding model and help you get back to what matters most, achieving your mission.

Do You:

  • Feel like you are constantly chasing money?
  • Struggle to budget for new staff or space because of limited capacity building funds?
  • Know which funding streams are most valuable for your organization?

We find that these issues are all too common for nonprofit organizations we work with, no matter their size. So, to help you overcome these challenges, we’ve developed a development curriculum that can be delivered in as little as 4 hours.

Key Outcomes

  • Identify the best funding model(s) for your organization
  • Analyze your past, present and future efforts with our proprietary funding evaluation model
  • Develop a funding plan custom tailored to meet your organizational needs and abilities

We know your time is precious. That’s why our workshops include team working sessions, so we can get past theory and give you personalized and tangible solutions you can use back in the office with your team, immediately!

Who Is This Workshop For?

Executive Directors, Development professionals, leaders and teams responsible for funding efforts.
