Nonprofits for the Future:
The Roadmap to Increase Impact and Spark Sustainable Funding Sources Through Leveraging Social Entrepreneurship

Wednesday, November 1st, 8th and 15th at 5:45-7:45 pm
Colorado Lending Source, 1441 18th St, Denver, CO

Yes. We’re expanding the nonprofit toolbox to include business for good. Let's spearhead more changing the world, less funding woes. You'll learn the strategies that innovative nonprofits (that started just like you) are already implementing to change the tide for their organization.

The end result is stronger, more sustainable nonprofits.


This isn't your typical workshop.
It's your complete action plan.

If you’ve imagined a world where nonprofits have budgets as big as the challenges they face, if you’ve dreamed of having a big enough team to execute your mission in its fullest, and if you ever felt that you were only scratching the surface on the true impact that your organization can have, then this program is for you.

The stakes are high for nonprofits. Yet, imagine what problems we could solve in Denver alone if we tear down the constraints?

 

Tackle Homelessness

Creating innovative solutions that solve the growing homeless problem.

Champion Affordable Housing

Ensuring every family has a safe and warm place to call home.

Eliminate Food Deserts

Creating access to healthy and affordable food in all corners of the city.

Break the Cycle

From homelessness to poverty to incarceration, break the cycle through dignified employment and education.

And that’s not even scratching the surface.

Nonprofits in Denver are already transforming their impact through combining social enterprise and nonprofits in a hybrid approach.

Dozens of nonprofits are using the hybrid model to reach more people, create self-sustaining programs, and help more individuals than ever before.
