Donor Survey matching grant, Learning Community application deadlines approaching.

Just a reminder to the CFO’s Agency Partners: Applications for matching Donor Survey grants are due next Friday, Aug. 29, by 5 p.m.

Recipients of these grants will receive $2,500 to conduct donor surveys through CCG Communication, based in Springfield. The surveys will provide information about donor preferences, awareness and perceptions about your agency. The cost of the survey will vary depending on the size of your donor base, with a maximum of $5,000. The agencies selected for this grant will be expected to provide 1:1 matching funds.

You can find an online application here, or contact Julie Leeth at (417) 864-6199 for more information.

We also are now taking applications for the 2014-15 cohort of The Learning Community. This program offers intensive training and customized technical assistance to 10 non-profit partners over a 10-month period. The CFO has retained Springfield-based Cal LeMon of Executive Enrichment to provide this capacity-development program, which includes an organizational needs assessment; four one-day group workshops; and onsite, one-on-one coaching sessions.
