How Our Programs Work
Your organization sends a mixed team of seven to ten people—board members, staff and volunteers—to a two-day workshop we offer in several cities in the U.S. each year.
Your team sits at its own round table in a room with ten to twenty other teams from different types of nonprofits.
Our Benevon instructor guides you through a workbook of scripts and templates, tailoring every aspect of the Benevon Model to your organization’s unique needs. In the course of the two days, with the help of your coach, your team designs a customized implementation plan and timeline, including:
Over the next year, your team receives telephone coaching every eight to ten weeks, strategically timed to coincide with the major milestones in the model leading up to your first Free One-Hour Ask Event.
Results: The average first-year group raises $200,000 in cash and pledges.
The five-year Sustainable Funding Program
We work with you to craft the ideal team, based on our experience with over 5,000 nonprofit teams since 1996.
Using our formulas and spreadsheets, our trained coaches assist your team in quantifying a measurable definition of sustainable funding (e.g. reserve fund, endowment, number of new individual donors) and then coach your team to attain yearly benchmarks.
As part of the Sustainable Funding Program tuition, you may train additional team members over the five years at our online Benevon New Team Member Intensive.
