Okay. I started a non-profit. Now what?

June 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


You have joined the ranks of the brave few folks who have identified an issue or problem and decided to start your own non-profit. After the buzz of the launch has withered down, you are left with a considerable number of questions, challenges, and opportunities. Where do you start first? It’s important to take time to examine the reasons that drove you to create this non-profit – these will be touchstones you will return to regularly for advice, for course correction, and for motivation. This workshop is best suited for founding Executive Directors and board members who want to take some time to strategize what needs to be done to ensure the longevity of your new organization.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Identify their non-profit origin story;
  • Explore obstacles that they specifically will encounter with their work;
  • Identify opportunities and how to make the most of them;
  • Strategize how to approach creating your first (or second) generation Executive Board – visions, expectations, and shortlists

This workshop is best suited for:

Founding Executive Directors and board members who want to take some strategic reflection time to ponder what needs to be done to ensure the longevity of your new organization.”
