Ready, Set, Grow...Positioning Your Community Based Organization to Get Government Grants

It’s no secret that community-based organizations are making a tremendous impact all across the country. In fact, most of the major work that has happened around social issues on a national scale began from a grassroots movement. Issues like the prevention of drinking and driving, smoke-free restaurants, getting healthier foods in school cafeterias are all things that began on a local, grassroots level. 

So, we know that community-based organizations are valuable. It’s just unfortunate that they aren’t always fundable.  Their inability to get funded has more to do with how the organization is run than the work that they actually do.

As a community based organization begins to grow, the level of work doesn’t necessarily change. You have to work just as hard to sustain your organization as you did to start it. The car washes, bake sales, and ticket raffles you did to raise the money to start your programs won’t be enough to elevate your organization to the next level. 

That’s why this NEW training was designed. We want to teach you what it takes to build the capacity of your organization in order to receive the type of funding necessary to accomplish your lofty organizational goals. 

Ready, Set, Grow is a webinar that will outline what it takes for small community-based organizations to position themselves to receive government grants. Government grants are the primary source for major funding. The government can be an incredible partner for community organizations, but building that kind of alliance requires strategy. This training will teach you that strategy.

This webinar will be held on Tuesday, January 7th from 7:00 - 8:15 PM. 

This will be a power-packed hour. This training will cover:

- 3 key questions to ask yourself to determine if you’re ready for the next steps

- Strategies for Financial Management

- Setting Goals and Objectives

- Strategic Planning for your organization

- Performance Outcomes and why they’re important

- Preparing to pursue government funding

- Roles and responsibilities of the grantor and the grantee 

AND you’ll get a chance to ask your questions.

This webinar will educate you on what you need to do and set you on a path to get it done.

How to recruit and retain an effective board of directors

Course Description

 If there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that success is not accidental. It is the result of a lot of hard work and a good strategy.

For a nonprofit organization, its strategy for success lies in its board of directors. In particular, who they select to serve on the board.

The choice of who serves on the board of a nonprofit organization needs to be very deliberate. Every member needs to serve a specific purpose. If you’re making selections based on who you know and who you think will make your decision making process easier, then your nonprofit organization will have an uphill battle as it strives for success and effectiveness.

The new online course – Board Development: How to Recruit and Retain an Effective Board of Directors was developed to assist nonprofit leaders with creating a board of directors.

This course covers the following:

· The roles and responsibilities of board members

· Recruitment strategies for selecting an effective board

· Recommended term limits for serving on a board

· The difference between an advisory board and a governing board

· How to prevent conflict between the CEO and Board Chairman

· How to protect your board of directors and nonprofit organization from lawsuits

· and MUCH more…

Trust me, if you’re seriously considering running a nonprofit organization, you need to make the simple investment in this course to ensure you get off on the right foot. It’s much better to start out with a good board of directors, than to have to switch course midstream after you realize your board is ineffective.

This is an online self-paced course.
