(SAVANNAH, Ga.) United Way of the Coastal Empire is proud to announce the Investor Readiness for Nonprofits Program scheduled to begin in mid-September. In partnership with Creative Coast, this executive leadership development program is designed to effectively teach nonprofit leaders how to engage investors, donors, and philanthropic organizations. Additionally, the six-week course teaches valuable skills including discovering investors, communicating the ‘story’ of an organization, and targeting messages for different demographics.

All classes will run for about two hours every Tuesday from 4-6 pm starting September 13, 2022. Each program participant will be paired with a mentor to coach them in preparation for the culminating event, the Pitch Competition. The Pitch Competition winners will receive in-kind consultation services provided by local businesses. Last year’s prizes included: nonprofit legal consultation, marketing, and web design services, grant writing coaching, and more.

Details and Eligibility:

This remote training cohort will provide nonprofit leaders with participatory training, one-on-one coaching, and critical fund development skills.

There is no cost to participate in this program. Participation is limited to executive directors and fund development staff. To be considered for the program, nonprofit organizations must have a physical presence in at least one of our four-county service areas: Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, or Liberty counties.
