Mohawk Valley NonProfit Leaders Program: Striving for Self-Sufficiency: Earned Revenue & Entrepreneurial Strategies
Rescheduled for November 21st
Presented by Doug Sauer, CEO New York Council of Nonprofits
There was a time where the most stable and viable nonprofits were those that relied on the traditional business model of contributions and government grants. Dependency on the "market" forces of philanthropic and taxpayer support is increasingly being viewed a limitation regarding sustainability as often they are outside of the influence and control of the nonprofit. Achieving self-sufficiency involves a third leg to the revenue stool - earned revenue, where there is a direct exchange of a product, service or privilege for monetary value. Participants in this workshop will have an opportunity to discuss and learn about earned revenue and entrepreneurial strategies - the pros, cons, and preparation and cultural shifts necessary to proceed down the entrepreneurial path.
This presentation is being funded by the CORPORATE PARTNERS of The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties: a collaboration of generous businesses and The Foundation to promote community advocacy, a speaker series and nonprofit capacity-building through comprehensive training seminars.
