Sustainable Funding Program

After successfully implementing the Benevon Model the first year, most organizations have a glimpse of the fundraising potential—and complexity—of our seemingly simple model and they choose to join our five-year Sustainable Funding Program in their second year.

The Benevon five-year Sustainable Funding Program is our special training and coaching package designed for groups serious about attaining long-term nonprofit financial sustainability.Staying with the model over time, organizations like yours are able to significantly increase their funding from individual donors year after year, building a strong major gifts program, funding for capital, and endowment.

The Benevon five-year Sustainable Funding Program is our special training and coaching package designed for groups serious about developing a culture of engagement and a robust major gifts program.

With five annual workshops (starting with Benevon 201) of successively advanced content and coaching customized to the needs of your organization, we guide your team of board, staff, and volunteers through the process of embedding the Benevon Model into the day-to-day culture of the organization and attaining your specific measurable goals for financial sustainability and community engagement.

In the Benevon Sustainable Funding Program, your organization will:

  • Create a step-by-step plan for attaining long-term financial sustainability and community engagement
  • Attend a two-day workshop each calendar year for five years with your team of eight to ten people ($250 per person fee for every team member over eight) and receive private coaching with your team every eight to ten weeks each year
  • Train new team members with the Benevon New Team Member Intensive to bring them up to speed on the Benevon Model for non profit fundraising, so long as they are all from the same local office as your original team and will be doing their fundraising together at one Ask Event
  • Be invited to participate in national conference calls to connect your board members, volunteers, executive director, and development staff with other Sustainable Funding Program participants and discuss challenges and best practices of non profit fundraising
