What does success mean to nonprofits? Lots of things, but funding success and program success are two of the big ones.

In this mentored training we will develop a nonprofit program that will:

Engage donors,
be able to be efficiently managed,
meet your clients' needs,
fulfill your nonprofit's mission, and
add credibility for future funding opportunities.

In this 6-month program, we will focus on one of your nonprofit programs to increase program impact, improve donor communication and prepare program management tools. You will learn to design a program to attract donor funding and how to manage your program for sustainable impact. See the full syllabus.

First Three Months. In the first three months you will develop a program that fulfills your nonprofit's mission and that includes community input from a participatory needs assessment. You will research solutions to the special challenges in your program in order to refine your program's activities. You will also develop a set of management and presentation documents-such as a budget, logframe and a fact sheet for your donor communications.

Conduct a participatory needs assessment.
Design a program using best practice, evidence-based activities.
Develop program management documents.

Second Three Months. In the second three months you will package your compelling program concept and your donor documents for a donor presentation. You will then identify a potential donor and make an appointment to present it. You will learn how to launch, manage and develop long-term sustainability in your program.

Develop presentation for donor communications.
Identify donors for your new presentations.
Learn how to launch and manage your program.
