FY23 Cohort-Based Trainings
We are very excited to offer NEW cohort-based trainings aligned with our commitment to support the organizational health and resilience of the nonprofits serving our communities. We believe these opportunities will help address organization concerns and help propel your organization to the next level.
We have partnered with Resilia and Jumpstart Network for Good to offer year-long, cohort-based trainings for nonprofits in our six counties, including Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Martin, Pinellas, and Hillsborough.
Resilia is a first-of-its kind national Funder Learning and Action Network aimed at elevating the capacity and voices of BIPOC-led/serving grassroots organizations. It is a highly customized one-year capacity building online program that offers 1;1 nonprofit coaching and peer-to-peer learning. Organizations will have 24/7 access to a team of nonprofit coaches for unlimited 30 minute consultation sessions.
Cohort members will have access to Resilia Academy, which is curated, bite-sized, actionable video courses spanning 5-20 minutes covering fundraising, governance, board management, and more.
Organizations will have access to 50+ downloadable templates and resources to expedite daily mission-facing & back-office needs.
All invited nonprofits received unlimited access to Resilia’s team of in-house nonprofit coaches.

Jumpstart Network for Good
Jumpstart Network for Good program provides grant partners with effective fundraising capacity-building support to create transformational change. It is a year-long program that pairs nonprofits with a personal fundraising coach and the integrated technology needed to engage community, diversify revenue, and sustain their programs.
Each participant will have the opportunity to match with a fundraising coach at the start of the program, Participants typically meet virtually with their coach twice a month, however, scheduling is flexible to accommodate the nonprofit’s calendar and upcoming campaigns.
Convenings & Peer Learning
Over the course of the year-long program, Jumpstart Network for Good will co-facilitate two to three cohort meetings. During these meetings, nonprofit leaders have the opportunity to share success stories, ask for advice, and discuss where they may be challenged in an open forum.
Technology & Technical Assistance
Participants will move from disjointed, isolated systems to manage and engage their donors through Network for Good’s technology suite.
Educational Curriculum & Virtual Library
As a cohort, all participants are enrolled in a monthly best-practice fundraising curriculum that complements coaching sessions. Each month, a different fundraising topic is presented, and nonprofits receive corresponding tools and templates.
