Description

Investing In Your Nonprofit's Capacity

Course Description:

During this interactive, hands-on workshop, organizational teams of 3 to 5 will learn about the 7 Nonprofit Lifecycle Stages that include: Idea, Start-up, Growth, Maturity, Decline, Turnaround, and Terminal. Then they will apply these stages to a real-life nonprofit case study. Following a discussion about the case, teams will work together in collaboration with Nonprofit Lifecycle consultants to determine what stage their organization is currently in. 

This training will help nonprofits assess capacity imbalances throughout their organization and will help them then determine what areas they should be focusing on for growth.

About the Lifecycles Institute:

The concept of lifecycle capacity building was developed by Susan Kenny Stevens, Ph.D., founder of the Nonprofit Lifecycles Institute and author of Nonprofit Lifecycles: Stage-based Wisdom for Nonprofit Capacity, which is considered essential reading and a guiding force in the nonprofit community.

Nonprofit Lifecycles Institute is a community of nonprofits, funders, consultants, and academic practitioners who understand the direct relationship between a nonprofit organization’s operating capacity and the ability to effectively deliver the services and programs defined in their mission.

"This was one of the best workshops I've ever attended."

"I'm so very grateful...and excited. Big things are ahead for us!"


Registration fee includes consultation (This is only available to nonprofits headquartered in Arizona at this time) - a minimum of 4 hours of consulting per organization ($600+ value) 

Attendance Requirements:

Organizational registrations are available for teams of CEOs/EDs, Board Chairs and incoming Board Chairs, and other key staff team members.
  • The CEO/ED must attend (If no FTE staff then the Board Chair must attend).
     
  • At least 3 people, no more than 5, from an organization must attend (strictly enforced because this is a "working" workshop; If you have questions about this, please contact us at events@azimpactforgood.org)
     
    • It is ideal, but not required, if the Board Chair or one Board Member can be present (Board Chair is required if no FTE staff).
       
    • Only one member of an organization needs to register for the group. This representative can assign the tickets to the rest of the attending team upon checkout. 
       
  • Organizations must utilize their free consultation opportunity within 2-3 months after the workshop. (Consultations are to be completed virtually with each organization receiving a minimum of 4 hours ($600+ value) of consulting. This workshop benefit is only available to Arizona nonprofits, not to peer associations at this time.)

*Cancelation Policy - refunds can only be given if a cancelation request is sent/called in at least one week before the event to events@azimpactforgood.org

Workshop Follow-Up Consultation:

(Available to Arizona participants ONLY)

A week after the workshop, the attending nonprofit organization will be responsible for sending in their current Lifecycle Placement and Capacity Improvement plan (both short and long term). The majority of this information will be completed during the training. 

Participants who complete the follow-up Capacity Improvement Plan, will be eligible for a minimum of 4 hours of consulting per organization, a $600+ value. (This benefit is only available to nonprofits headquartered in Arizona at this time of consultation)* from a trained and experienced Nonprofit Lifecycle Consultant with the purpose of clarifying and providing direction on Capacity Improvement goals. 

This consultation will need to be completed within 2-3 months after attending this workshop and will be held virtually.

*Dependent upon number of registered organizations, therefore consultation could include more hours.
