Network for Good

Network for good

NPLI’s vision is that nonprofits have access to the resources they need to better achieve their mission. By partnering with Network for Good’s Jumpstart we’re co-investing in a program to assist nonprofits in leveraging technology to resource their missions. 

NPLI and Network for Good collaborate to provide a grant program so nonprofits can participate in Jumpstart at significant savings. Jumpstart utilizes Network for Good’s all-in-one fundraising platform to help small to mid-size nonprofits manage and communicate with donors. This immersive year-long program matches nonprofits with a personal fundraising coach and assists with development planning to help nonprofits establish, diversify and increase individual fundraising revenues.

In addition to grant funding, Nonprofit Leadership Initiative supports participants by providing monthly user group sessions to answer questions and to enhance peer learning.

grant information

In 2018 the Nonprofit Leadership Initiative partnered with Network for Good to provide grant funding to nonprofits for one-year of participation in Network for Good’s Jumpstart program. Due to the programs success, it was an easy decision to continue the capacity building program and award up to five grants annually to nonprofits within NPLI’s service region.  

Network for Good requires applicants to complete an assessment form to ensure applicants are ready, willing and able to participate. Grantees attend a 1:1 information session to ensure program requirements are understood and accepted. Program requirements include: demonstrated history of individual fundraising; a commitment to dedicate five or more hours to consistent fundraising; and using the Network for Good software to raise money more effectively. 

The one-year program is an opportunity to pilot the software and work with a certified fundraising coach to become a better fundraiser. Grantees are under no obligation to continue using the software or contract with their fundraising coach after the first year of participation. Nonprofit Leadership Initiative’s Jumpstart grantees have experienced a great deal of fundraising success and to date all grantees have elected to continue utilizing the Network for Good software. 

Grant funding covers the majority of the software and fundraising coach expense, however nonprofits are required to invest in their fundraising program. Typical first year expense has been no more than $600 – cost sharing information is detailed in the Network for Good assessment/application form. After the pilot year, nonprofits assume the cost of the software which is determined by the number of donor contacts. 

 

Network for Good is a chance to raise your game as an organization. I would encourage any nonprofit to try the software and coaching. We’ve raised five times our prior year year-end campaign amount in our first year of using Network for Good.

I sent out my first email blast yesterday through Network for Good and it was so easy. I used the template to put the email together and it was very user friendly. If I had questions on how to do something then I referred to Network for Good’s Help feature and utilized their View Guides and Help Articles. I was able to schedule my email to be delivered at 8:00 am and by 8:05 am I was already receiving email responses. I’ll definitely be using this on a more regular basis.
