    A capital campaign is, perhaps one of, if not, the greatest undertaking an organization can do in its lifetime.  Nonprofits have one opportunity to “get it right” and approach donors, prospective donors, and the general community with a compelling case and sound plan. 

    What is a capital campaign? A capital campaign, by bloomerang definition, is an intense effort on the part of a nonprofit organization to raise significant dollars in a specified period of time. Usually the money raised is to fund acquiring or renovating a building, but often the campaign’s focus is on building an endowment for the future.

    If your organization is thinking about planning for a capital campaign this course is for you.

    The Benefits:

    This course, led by a Nonprofit Network Capacity Building Consultant, will follow a capital campaign syllabus designed to review all elements of a capital campaign.  Sessions will include structured conversations and participants will gain knowledge around key topics including: 

    • feasibility studies
    • factors in working (or not) with a campaign consultant
    • organizational readiness; case for support
    • prospect identification
    • campaign leadership, phases and planning
    • one-on-one personal asks
    • lower end asks
    • special event utilization
    • campaign materials
    • appropriate thank you and recognition
    • staff involvement
    • concluding a campaign

    Appropriate for: Executive Directors, Development Directors, and leadership volunteers who have had a minimum of 3 years of fundraising experience including one-on-one asks of individual donors, successful experience with and infrastructure for collecting and stewarding annual gifts, major gifts, corporate gifts and preferably solicitation of planned gifts. *Not appropriate for organizations outside the United States since these sessions are based in and around the US culture.

    At the heart of your nonprofit organization is a unique, driving story that can transform your fund development, board recruitment, talent retention, volunteer management, and relationship to the community. Do you know your story and how to communicate it well at all levels, both internally and externally?

    Whether embarking on a capital campaign or raising funds for your annual campaign, EVERY nonprofit should have a case for support (CFS).  Your Case For Support provides your organization’s mission and history. It communicates the community need and how your organization responds to those needs. And it presents the vision for your future and how the gifts of current and prospective donors create hope for the future.  

    The CFS is the foundation of all your donor focused communications and is a valuable tool not only for anyone who is helping raise money for your organization, but also for any current or prospective donors as well.

    Session Goals 

    This two hour virtual workshop is designed to help participants understand the CFS’s role in telling your organization’s story and why it is essential for successful fundraising.  

    Goals will include the following:

    • Key elements in a CFS
    • Process for writing the CFS
    • Length of the CFS
    • Difference between the “internal” and “external” CFS

    Designed for

    The session will provide beginner communication and fundraising staff guidelines for producing a strong CFS and as a refresher for more seasoned staff charged with developing a CFS.

    The Cross-Cultural Conversations Council invites community members to attend this important training to learn about, uncover, and address systemic racism, biases and barriers for our community members.

    Through self-assessment and facilitated activities, participants gain increased understanding of their personal background and perspective on the implications of how their experience affects how they think and react to others from different backgrounds.

    Organizations discover the value of practicing a more open and inclusive mindset into day-to-day operations

    Session Agenda -  9:00 am - 1:00 pm

    "Cross-Cultural Conversations, Part I: Striving toward Improved Sensitivity in Communication and Clearer Understanding of the Effects of Privilege and Unconscious Bias"

    ·         Define cultural awareness, sensitivity, and competence
    ·         Identify issues of equality vs. equity
    ·         Recognize the influence of “isms” in our communication
    ·         Recognize privilege and bias
    ·         Identify ways to bridge barriers

    “Cross-Cultural Conversations, Part II: Steps to Overcoming Barriers"

    ·         Where do you stand on the continuum of awareness?
    ·         Addressing micro-aggression's
    ·         Recognizing unconscious bias
    ·         Using tools to enhance communication and understanding

    Having a better understanding of ourselves, our colleagues, and our clientele will lead to more cohesion and greater effectiveness in our interactions.

    Improving Your Team and Leadership Capacity
    *This Introductory Session Sponsored by Nonprofit Network

    Sometimes the difficult part about being part of a team or being a team leader is helping people learn to work together. A group of diverse people coming together to work on complex tasks and problems sounds ideal - until that group is frustrated, at odds and struggling to actually get anything accomplished.

    The more you understand peoples (and your own) work styles, work preferences, ways to process and communicate information, the better you can assist the team in being effective and most importantly reduce conflict and stress. 

    The introductory DiSC® assessment process helps to identify and understand communication and conflict styles, how people react under stress or frustration, what motivates – or de-motivates and engages people. The strengths and weaknesses of the team are keys to a thriving and enjoyable culture and working effectively and productively. 

    DiSC®? What is that? 

    DiSC® is a personal development learning experience that measures preferences and tendencies. This simple yet powerful model describes four basic styles. An assessment tool (taken prior to the workshop) will allow participants to receive personalized insights that will deepen understanding of self and others.  Additionally, the personalized insights share strategies for working with other Styles. The result creates opportunities to have a more engaged, collaborative workforce that can spark meaningful culture improvement in your organization—whether your workforce is remote, in the office, or somewhere in between. 

    In this workshop we will: 

    • Provide you with your personal DISC assessment results.
    • Learn about different Styles and the DiSC system.
    • Discuss how different Styles interact with each other and how that interaction impacts organizational culture

    Who would benefit most? 

    Anyone in a leadership position or anyone who supervises other people. Anyone who wants to understand themselves and others better.  Anyone seeking to create a more inclusive workplace (learning how to work with people different than yourself is a critical function. A common outcome of this introductory session is attendants bringing their learning back to their organization and advocate for an org only presentation, which allows time to sufficiently review your own organization.

    (This Workshop requires 30 minutes of pre-work completed 2 days before the workshop. Register soon to get your link to complete your DISC assessment. For this reason, registration will close Tuesday February 15th, 2022 at 10:00 am

    Costs: $75 per attendee which includes your personal assessment


      ______________________________________________________________________________


    Everything DiSC® is a personal development learning experience that measures preferences and tendencies based on the DiSC® model. This simple yet powerful model describes four basic styles: D, i, S, and C, and serves as the foundation for the Everything DiSC Application Suite. Participants receive personalized insights that deepen their understanding of self and others, making workplace interactions more enjoyable and effective.

    The result is a more engaged, collaborative workforce that can spark meaningful culture improvement in your organization—whether your workforce is remote, in the office, or somewhere in between.

    Peer Coaching Groups - Overview

    Peer Coaching Groups are designed to facilitate goal-setting, coaching and action learning within a small group of peers. Each group member decides what real-world goal or issue they wish to address, and guided by a facilitator their peers will coach primarily through asking open-ended questions to expand the member’s thinking and options

    Members commit to taking action between meetings and report on progress and lessons learned. Peer Coaching Groups follow a very structured process that ensures that members work on issues that matter most, get help the way they need it and apply what they have learned.

    The Benefits

    • In addition to being coached, members develop core coaching skills
    • Through open-ended questions and limited advice, members are able to tap their own knowledge and that of their peers
    • Members work on real challenges or goals – the things that matter most here and now
    • Members make new connections, receive feedback and gain new perspectives
    • Members are accountable to take action, so they learn by doing and following through.

     __________________________________________________________________________________

     How This Works*

    Peer Coaching groups will be customized with no more than 8 people per group. However a minimum of 6 is required to be the most beneficial so the start date will vary until we have the minimum of perfect peers. 

    Groups will then form as we identify participants that will form a cohesive group. Please complete our "Peer Coaching Group Interest" Form HERE  Reserve your spot today!

    After informal phone interviews with each of you and a group is established coaching sessions will meet monthly and will last 2 - 2.5 hours. Groups will meet for 7 online sessions (1 meet and greet + 6 coaching sessions) and this will expand over 6-8 months with each group facilitated by a Trained Cognitive Coach. 

    Participation cost is $625 for NN members and $725 for non-members. Billing will occur once a start date has been established and confirmed with each group.
