Please join The Nonprofit Partnership and Janet Cobb of Janet Cobb Consulting for a virtual learning opportunity: "The 10 Commandments for Nonprofit Strategy, Communication, and Fundraising" on Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 2:00 PM EST!

Just like the classically known 10 Commandments, The 10 Commandments for Nonprofit Strategy, Communication, and Fundraising are arranged to clearly outline a three-plan approach for nonprofits to do more good in the world.

With her many years of experience in the nonprofit sector, Janet Cobb has learned that when an organization engages in the process of creating a strategic plan, develops a communications plan to consistently share their vision with others, and integrates a fundraising plan to empower others to embrace their vision, they set the stage for organizational growth and a clear path for reaching success.

If you’ve been running on a wing and a prayer and you're ready to get out of the desert, don't miss this session. Discover the three-plan approach to explore budget-friendly strategic planning, develop effective communications and integrate a fundraising plan to empower others to support your vision. Walk away with tips to get and keep donors. Learn how to diversify revenue streams and create long-term sustainability. Tackle all of the important nonprofit plans with cohesion! Let Janet help.

Key takeaways for this session include:

  • Decide on the best method to create a strategic plan and understand the key elements needed.
  • How to create a year-long communications plan with key elements.
  • Calendar a fundraising plan with clear goals, objectives, and action steps.
  • Understand the importance of integrating all three plans to move your mission forward and establish long-term sustainability.
Bonus! Check out Janet's book, The 10 Commandments for Nonprofit Strategy, Communication, and Fundraising, here!

More about Janet...

Janet has worked in the nonprofit arena her entire career, holding a wide variety of positions including Communications Manager, Director of Development and Executive Director and handling budgets from under $50K to $8m. She integrates her skills in education, non-profit management, and fundraising to offer innovative solutions to align money and mission.

Janet is a Certified Nonprofit Professional and a Certified Fund Raising Executive.

Janet’s passion for social justice stems from her personal experience witnessing racism and oppression growing up in a majority Black government housing project. She stood on the periphery of racism and determined to always fight against it. After living in Taiwan and Hong Kong for seven years, twenty-five years ago, Janet married an African American man and together they’ve raised three biracial children, moving her closer to the center of racism and further igniting her determination to work for justice.

Janet’s personal and professional experience has fostered self-awareness, an understanding of cultural differences, and a passion to center the voices of those fighting for social justice.

Janet obtained an Equity & Inclusion E-Certificate from the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance in May 2018.

Janet has provided encouraging accountability to more than 250 small, early-stage and mid-size nonprofits (including many led by Leaders of Color) with varied missions, including but not limited to, racial equity, food and housing security, community organizing, education, the arts, and workforce development.

Janet empowers clients to develop best practices for donor cultivation and stewardship, donor-centric messaging and effective use of software for data analysis and multi-channel communications.

Janet offers strategic planning sessions across the country and has presented more than 20 webinars, and several on-site workshops for the Nonprofit Learning Lab and Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.

Janet’s new book is scheduled for release in November 2020.
