Purpose: to provide resources and hands-on mentoring for local nonprofit organizations developing and implementing endowment programs and planned giving activities for their long-term financial stability.
Problem: While many nonprofit organizations believe a growing endowment fund will help to sustain them, and that a planned giving program is important, most are in need of help to get a program started.
Solution: A tested program to encourage, instruct, nurture, and support select local nonprofit organizations on their path to establishing and operating successful and appropriate planned giving and endowment-building programs. This is an organizational mentoring program, modeled after a successful one launched in Silicon Valley in 2000, and in San Diego in 2010.
Selection Process: Nonprofit organizations must submit a written request by Friday July 18, 2014, and will be notified by Friday July 25 regarding acceptance. We will select up to seven, with a maximum of 10 total nonprofits enrolled at any one time. Follow-up activities and services will take place throughout the two-year period, ending officially by June 30, 2016, starting with the following:
