Since not-for-profits have experienced a substantial and sustained downward trend in funding, the need for demand and sustainable income are increasing. We wish to provide a not-for-profit program for our members and community to help them develop organizational foundations and learn how to create additional streams of revenue that will provide them the support to better fulfill their important missions.

Causelmpact, LLC (Causelmpact) has partnered with us to implement a multi-phased program to support our Hamilton County organizations to develop successful and sustainable social enterprises.

By attending these programs (lunch-and-learns, workshops, and bootcamps), we hope our organizations can better understand fundamentals of social enterprise and investments. These will lead to the awareness of assets and best practices in identifying opportunities, development, planning, funding, and sustainability for their organizational mission and goals.

This series will be held at the Collaboration Hub – a regional, membership-based not-for-profit coworking, meeting, and event space – in a unique hybrid fashion that allows our county’s organizations maintain schedule flexibility with a digital viewing option.
