NEW program for Ontario Non-profits: Earning Capacity Project

If you answer yes' to the questions below, then the Earning Capacity Project may be a good opportunity for you!

" Is your non-profit interested in generating funds that aren't designated to a particular project?

" Does your organization have core expertise that could be turned into earned income?

" Are you already earning revenue and want to grow your capacity and find new markets?

" Is your organization committed to exploring or further developing earned revenue strategies?

" Are you interested in revenue development supports including training institutes in the Sudbury, Ottawa, Kitchener, or Markham/GTA area, and follow-up coaching?

Up to 30 community service organizations will be chosen to participate in the development of Earned Capacity using their existing organizational resources. Successful applicants will have a committed team, marketable expertise in areas such as IT, HR, marketing, space rental, and finance/accounting or corporate training, and will be ready for (or already involved in) earned revenue activities related to these service areas. You may have your own concept for a non-program enterprise. A Project Advisory Committee (PAC), and social enterprise and evaluation consultants will contribute their knowledge and expertise in small business and non-profit social enterprise development, and help in documenting results.
