Peer Coaching Groups

Peer Coaching Groups - Overview - New for 2024 a group for Fundraisers.

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. 

Also Recognizing the unique roles and challenges Fundraising professionals face within their organizations (and knowing the most successful fundraisers are good listeners), Nonprofit Network is establishing our first Fundraising Peer Coaching cohort! 
These groups, limited to Development Directors and Executive Directors who fulfill the fundraising role within their nonprofit, will be tailored to assist participants in their relationships and conversations with donors, prospective donors, board members and staff. 

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. 


2024 Peer Coaching Calendar: To be determined as cohesive groups are formed (7 online sessions)

 *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 number of comparable peers.
*We are taking interest forms now for 2024. We are planning for late Summer/Early Fall start times.

Groups will then form as we identify participants that will form a cohesive group. Please complete our
Peer Coaching Group for Leaders Interest" Form HERE  or complete our 
Fundraising Professionals Group Interest" Form HERE to reserve your spot in an upcoming session. 

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: $725 for NN members and $850 for non-members
