    Technical assistance (TA) is a key resource, in addition to training, for enhancing skills and the ability to implement what you’ve learned. As part of the Nonprofit Excelerator, ACS is now offering TA Work Groups as a follow-up to our training workshops.

    The goal of these work groups is to provide the support you need to put what you’ve learned into action!  In small, task-oriented groups, Kim will answer your questions and provide you with feedback on your working documents in a collaborative and encouraging environment. We hope this will provide you with the time, space, and opportunity to begin working on and completing your fundraising plans, case statements, proposals and budgets.

    The first TA work groups will focus on developing your fundraising plan. Attending the Developing a Fundraising Plan training is a prerequisite to attend one of these sessions. The dates are:

    Wednesday, July 31st from 9:30 – 11:30

    OR

    Wednesday, August 28th from 9:30 – 11:30

    Attendance for the TA Work Groups is capped at 20. Please bring a working draft or the start of your fundraising plan with you as a framework.

    The hardest part is getting started. We hope this helps!

    Registration & coffee begins 8:45 / Program 9:00 – 10:15

    Join us for an introduction to Evolving Minds, a nonprofit that has developed workplace mental health programs that have successfully reduced burnout and helped retain and attract staff. This session will be a free demo of their trainings to see if there is interest in pursuing their full 12-hour training program. The full training could be offered to individual nonprofits or to a group of nonprofits. Our goal in hosting this program is to help determine if there is interest in the full training. This is a bit different from our typical Exec-to-Exec Forums, but knowing that staff burnout is something we all experience in the nonprofit sector, this is an important topic we hope you will find interesting and useful.
