Orange County Government just announced a new three-year, $4 million partnership with the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College last week.
Through the new Empowering Good: A Nonprofit Capacity Building Project, Crummer’s Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership will provide nonprofit training support to small, county-based organizations. The program will offer training in five key areas: impact measurement, innovation, financial management, fundraising, and risk management.
The program will be capped at 36 participating organizations every six months over the next three years.
“This program will allow us to address pandemic and post-pandemic challenges as well as to help leaders position their organizations for long-term success.”– MIN SUN KIM, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, EDYTH BUSH INSTITUTE OF PHILANTHROPY AND NONPROFIT LEADERSHIP
According to a survey carried out by the Institute in April 2020 and cited in an earlier press release, 93.7% of 287 participating non-profits reported significant impacts from the pandemic on their programs and operations. 194 of those groups reported an anticipated revenue decrease of $48 million to $54 million between February 2020-June 2020.
Funding for the program came from the American Rescue Act.
