Formerly called Ready, Set, Fundraise, this workshop covers nonprofit management best practices with a goal of creating a sustainable organization. Funders look for proper accounting procedures, internal controls, a strong and active board of directors, consistent program evaluation and mission-based strategic planning. Participants work through the steps necessary to ensure their organizations have a strong foundation in order to be prepared to fundraise.

You will learn:

  • the role relationship plays in securing funding
  • how to write a clear and concise explanation of your mission
  • how to construct a compelling need statement
  • what funders look for in a budget
  • the importance of evaluating programs to determine if they meet the community need
  • the basics of nonprofit accounting and strong internal controls
  • the necessary actions that are required for the organization to comply with government reporting guidelines, funders' requests, and good stewardship
  • how to differentiate between the roles of the executive director and the board of directors
  • to identify the elements of a strategic plan and how to track progress towards meeting the plan's goals
