Back by popular demand! A mini version of this workshop was last offered in March of 2016 and a full program is now available to you this summer. We invite you to learn from experts Jenean Merkel Perelstein, from Alchemie Academy and Jarrett Ransom with The Rayvan Group,  as they explore the world of nonprofits with you.

The workshop content is targeted at leaders (CEO, president or executive director), Board Members and funding professionals (development director, etc) within an organization.

At this event, we’ll address some of the biggest challenges facing your nonprofit:

  • Creating sustainable revenue streams. Funding is the foundation for success in a nonprofit. It’s almost impossible to deliver programs with real impact and develop strong leaders without proper funding.
  • Attracting and retaining leaders. Your organization depends on your leadership. What is your workplace culture saying to your team and donors? We will discuss leadership best practices, effectively managing teams, and managing change.
  • Succession Planning. The only constant is change and whether you have a success plan in place or are caught off guard by a leadership change, the show must go on!

Other topics we’ll touch on are:

  • Revenue models and diversification
  • Establishing relationships and determining the best fit for your workforce
  • Understanding your role and boundaries as a board member
  • How to work with an outside consultant to take your nonprofit to the next level
  • Effective Leadership skills including time and energy management
