We were delighted to select MissionWise for this publication grant because of their unique expertise, thought-leadership, and strong record of accomplishment in mission-focused earned income for nonprofits.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) February 10, 2011
MissionWise®, the entrepreneurial nonprofit that trains health and human service organizations in the public sector to grow stronger and more sustainable, announced it has received funding by a grant from Healthcare Georgia Foundation to author a grantee publication on earned income for nonprofits. It will be the latest in a series of publications targeted to the Foundation's grantees and other nonprofits throughout Georgia designed to educate on topics pertaining to organizational growth, operational effectiveness and efficiency, building capacity, and long-term sustainability.
The need for education about earned income in the social sector has never been greater, particularly given the economic challenges faced by nonprofits of all types in recent years. With reductions in funding from government agencies, philanthropies, corporations, and individual donors, nonprofit leaders have been challenged to identify new sources of income that can provide their organizations with greater financial sustainability, diversification, and flexibility. In addition to providing funding for their grantee publication on earned income, Healthcare Georgia Foundation awarded a grant to MissionWise last year to conduct workshops for its grantees entitled Advancing Your Mission Through Earned Income Strategies, and Your Intellectual Property: Know It, Protect It, Profit From It.
According to Gary D. Nelson, PhD, President of Healthcare Georgia Foundation, "We were delighted to select MissionWise for this publication grant because of their unique expertise, thought-leadership, and strong record of accomplishment in mission-focused earned income for nonprofits." Nelson continued, "As part of an established nonprofit that operates as a social enterprise, MissionWise is uniquely qualified to help us educate and inform our grantees and other nonprofits throughout Georgia."
"There is tremendous value in teaching today's nonprofit leaders about entrepreneurial business practices that contribute to building greater mission impact and financial viability," said Cindy Coney, MissionWise Senior Strategy Consultant. "We are grateful to Healthcare Georgia Foundation for their commitment and dedication to educating their grantees and other nonprofits about the skills required for building capacity and long-term sustainability."
