  • Looking to build your leadership skills?
  • Interested in practical tools that will help your nonprofit advance?
  • Want in-depth instruction as well as coaching and assistance from experts?
Be a part of Making the Case!
Through a combination of in-person and online learning opportunities, you will develop the knowledge and skills you need to create a strong organizational “case for support,” while engaging in activities that expand your network, expose you to best practices and key issues in the field, and help you identify your leadership role within your organization. In keeping with EPIP’s Measuring a Leader framework, Making the Case will help you as an EPIP member:
  • Grow your influencing and fundraising skills through solid training in building a case for support with potential funders;
  • Build your strategic and analytical skills through financial analysis of your organizations; and
  • Expand your communication skills by understanding the creation and maintenance of brand identity.
This three-month program will cover the topics of creating a case statement, crafting a financial story, and clarifying a nonprofit brand. Experts from Foundation CenterNonprofit Finance Fund, and Big Duck will provide workshop instruction and assignments that help you take your nonprofit to a higher level. This new course begins September 9, 2014, and runs through December 5, 2014 and will take place at the Foundation Center's location in New York City. Participation in the inaugural program is free, but you must be able to attend meetings in person in NYC.  EPIP members receive the first opportunity to register. Apply online today! Application deadline August 29, 2014.
