With changes taking place across our nation, state, and city, many in the nonprofit sector are wondering if and how to start (or continue) pivoting their organization's programs or operations in response. 

To prepare for continued funding, legislative, and structural shifts, and to respond to emerging community needs, the New York City Capacity Building Collaborative is offering a free, three-part series on risk assessment and organizational planning for nonprofit leaders. 

Facilitated by Community Resource Exchange, this series will help organizations plan for a wide variety of scenarios, including turning risks into opportunities to advance their missions.

This workshop series will help your organization to:

  • Assess potential areas of vulnerability or weakness on various aspects of organizational capacity, from strategy to finance
  • Identify new opportunities for partnership and programming
  • Become better prepared to help your staff and organization respond to new challenges     

The training will be conducted by Jeff Ballow and Fiona Kanagasingam of Community Resource Exchange.     

Who should sign up?
Senior-level leaders of nonprofit organizations in New York City. Each participating organization will be required to send the same two senior-level staff people to all three sessions. Where appropriate/desired, a Board member may be part of the organization’s team attending this series. Applicants must commit to participating in the full program and complete a pre-engagement survey designed to help the trainers better understand your organization. 

Dates and Times:

  • Session 1: Thursday, January 11, 2018, 9:00 am –  1:00 pm
  • Session 2: Thursday, February 8, 2018, 9:30 am –  12:30 pm
