Upcoming Events

Scaling Up Social Impact Workshop
When demand for social services grows, providers want to offer more of what they do well and funders want to support programs that demonstrate success. Both want to increase community impact—without sacrificing mission-based goals. But how? Unlike commercial ventures or start-ups, nonprofits struggle to finance their growth, especially without earned income and the challenges of government budget cuts and unstable philanthropic dollars. So, how do we scale up with so many considerations?

Join FPWA and The Public Good who will share insights and techniques to help nonprofits that are considering scaling a program to meet changing needs.  

Key Takeaways
Whether your organization is new to the process or at a sticking point, you will:
•    Review materials & share technical resources 
•    Identify different pathways to scale up programs
•    Understand the value of strategic partnerships
•    Minimize risk

Date: Wednesday, September 11
Breakfast & Networking: 8:30AM – 9AM
Time: 9AM – 11AM
Location: FPWA Conference Center
40 Broad Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10004
