The Introduction

You know your community best.

That’s why we start our work with an introduction to the community from a trusted leader within the community.

We take time to listen and learn about your region’s ecosystem, major initiatives, challenges, and aspirations.

We bring education and tools for funders and nonprofit leaders, increasing awareness of the impact sustainability can have across entire communities.

Our structured process incorporates stakeholder interviews, surveys, and group education opportunities.  We capture:

  • nonprofit and funder interest in sustainability
  • volunteer culture and capacity
  • community equity goals

Deliverables throughout the 12-week program include:

  • education
  • tools
  • Sustainability Readiness Assessment
