Nonprofit Lifecycles Capacity Building

September 25, 2024 11:30 AM - 6:00 PM (EDT)


During this interactive, hands-on workshop, organizational teams of 3 to 5 will learn about the 7 Nonprofit Lifecycle Stages that include: Idea, Start-up, Growth, Maturity, Decline, Turnaround, and Terminal. Then they will apply these stages to a real-life nonprofit case study. Following a discussion about the case, teams will work together in collaboration with Nonprofit Lifecycle consultants to determine what stage their organization is currently in. 

This training will help nonprofits assess capacity imbalances throughout their organization and will help them then determine what areas they should be focusing on for growth.

About the Lifecycles Institute:

The concept of lifecycle capacity building was developed by Susan Kenny Stevens, Ph.D., founder of the Nonprofit Lifecycles Institute and author of Nonprofit Lifecycles: Stage-based Wisdom for Nonprofit Capacity, which is considered essential reading and a guiding force in the nonprofit community.

Nonprofit Lifecycles Institute is a community of nonprofits, funders, consultants, and academic practitioners who understand the direct relationship between a nonprofit organization’s operating capacity and the ability to effectively deliver the services and programs defined in their mission.
