Executive Summary

North Carolina Center for Nonprofit Organizations, Inc.

The N.C. Center for Nonprofits (Center) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Raleigh, NC. It serves 501(c)(3) nonprofits in all 100 NC counties. About 95% of its members are small/midsize nonprofits with annual budgets under $5 million. The Center seeks a $200,000 grant.

We propose the Sustainable Nonprofit Program (Program) to provide training and technical assistance to 15-30 small/midsize NC nonprofits to help them develop performance management systems through our existing "Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence: A Self-Help Tool for Organizational Effectiveness" (P&P). The Program will serve nonprofits throughout NC, with a particular focus on those in Tier 1 counties (the 40 most distressed counties based on the NC Department of Commerce's annual ranking of economic well-being) and Tier 2 (the next 40) counties.

The Center will select nonprofits to participate in the Program (Participants) using a competitive process based on:

-Qualification as small/midsize nonprofits providing services aligned with the Corporation's priorities.

-Willingness and capacity to participate fully.

-Challenges in resources for sustainability and expansion of services.

-Capacity to implement a performance management system during the two-year period.

-Geographic area (priority to Tiers 1 and 2 counties).

We will offer training and technical assistance to Participants' staff and board members, including:

-Five in-person workshops on specific areas of organizational effectiveness and performance management.

-Bimonthly webinars on the 11 benchmarks in P&P.

-Peer-to-peer learning through in-person meetings, conference calls, and a listserv.

-Ongoing technical assistance.

-Access to pro bono professional services.

-Individual consultations as needed.

Additional nonprofits will have access to training and technical assistance, so the Program will serve 100-150 other nonprofits.
