Nonprofits: Create New Income Streams While Sharing Knowledge

Creating and sustaining new income streams can be enormously challenging. In this economy, most organizations find they are working in isolation and frustrated in their attempt to create alternative long-term income sources that will sustain their organization.

At the same time, nonprofit organizations re-invent wheels and re-invent mistakes as they develop information and materials that already exist in other organizations. With new, online marketplaces dedicated to nonprofit tools / templates / business plans / checklists, it’s easy to learn, share and earn with nonprofits everywhere. For this reason, many nonprofits are finding the knowledge sharing is their first social enterprise.

Through examples and discussion this fast-paced hour will include:

  • Discussing social enterprise ideas with your board

  • Using peer forums to learn from your nonprofit peers while challenging each other to a higher standard of excellence

  • Saving your organization significant time and money by accessing resources you might not find through other means, and

  • Ways to use earn enough income to make sharing worth the time

You will learn how to:

  • Assess what knowledge you have that might be valuable to others

  • Evaluate how to price your knowledge assets

  • Promote your knowledge content easily and broadly

  • Establish a peer learning forum

  • Take the first steps toward convincing your board and staff that knowledge sharing is worthwhile

Who Should Attend:

Nonprofit executives, Managers, Supervisors, Volunteer Coordinators, Resource Development staff, Event Managers, Board Members, Team Leaders, Marketing Managers, Program Managers, Finance Managers
