Support Center Accelerator Series: Getting Investment Ready

February 14, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EST


Support Center is hosting a series of four workshops in three locations across NJ (Newark, Piscataway, and Moorestown – see below for dates and times) that address critical issues in the nonprofit sector: succession planning, attracting and retaining ‘investors’, capturing and communicating mission impact, and integrating organization assessments into strategic planning. The series will begin in November 2019 and run through May 2020.

Who should attend?! New Jersey-based nonprofit CEOs and Executive Directors, Board Members, and Senior Staff are all encouraged to attend all of the sessions, and multiple persons from one organization are especially welcome! It is also an option to register only for those sessions of interest to your organization. The sessions will include short lectures, small group activities, opportunities to ask questions, useful hand-outs, case studies, and fun! There will also be opportunities for follow-up sessions to integrate what you have learned with your peers.

Session 2: Getting Investment Ready; Connecting the Dots of Program Planning, Budgeting and Fundraising

While nonprofits complain about the difficulty of obtaining funding from foundations, funders complain about the scarcity of really good proposals. In this workshop, we will review the steps to ‘get ready’ to pursue funding successfully by aligning program design, budgeting and organizational readiness for funding. Trends in funding will be reviewed as well as some of the challenges of this integrated approach.
