501(c)(3) Communities

A community built for you

The nonprofit sector faces significant challenges. Nonprofit organizations are tasked with addressing and solving society’s most pressing issues, but are thwarted by limited resources and capacity. To state the obvious… this can be quite overwhelming for our sector’s leaders! In addition to being dedicated to monumental missions, leaders are often left to do so in a vacuum, feeling alone and sometimes, defeated.

The Nonprofit Partnership’s new cohort program, 501(c)(3) Communities, has been created to assist nonprofits in tackling the issues they face by helping them to build networks, engage partners and share resources. Cohort participants will learn and develop as professionals, in addition to building relationships that will lend to solving issues – with the goal of strengthening our sector and our community. It’s a big endeavor… we know!

Nonprofit leaders and development professionals, we’ve found a community built just for you. 

The details:

  • Each community will meet 8x throughout 2023 – applicants must try to commit to attending all sessions (Thursdays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM)
  • Typical sessions will be four hours in length – a sample agenda includes:
    • Networking
    • Updates
    • Learning content
    • Discussion
    • Activity
    • Food, of course
  • Sharing and collaborative problem-solving will be a primary goal of each cohort; participants will commit to confidentiality and discretion
  • Communities will be limited to 12 participants each
    • Applicants must be associated with a member organization of The Nonprofit Partnership
  • Each cohort will have an online community to continue connections and information-sharing
  • The cost to participate is $350 and covers food and beverage, materials, associated fees and more.
    • Cohorts will be provided with books and resources as determined by participants to fulfill collective learning goals.
