Six Local Nonprofits Chosen for 12 Months of Intensive Instruction
Next Stage Nonprofit Planning & Consulting has announced the six members of the 2021 cohort of CULTIVATE, a yearlong virtual learning program established in 2018 to help leaders of local nonprofits prepare for long-term sustainability and community impact.
The program offers monthly instruction focusing on several key areas: marketing, community building, data collection and storytelling. There is no cost to participating nonprofits.
Members of the 2021 CULTIVATE cohort are:
- Adoption Support Alliance
- Carolina Youth Coalition
- Do Greater Foundation
- GenOne CLT
- Project Bolt
- She Built This City
“The 2021 cohort is diverse in organizational size, mission focus and background — but they each articulated a clear strategic opportunity to explore during their time in CULTIVATE and a desire to operate in collaboration with other nonprofits,” said Caylin Haldeman, director of CULTIVATE.
