What we're about

Do you have an idea to start a nonprofit organization but do not know how to start?
Do you run a small nonprofit and want to secure more funding?

Starting a nonprofit organization is not easy and the work you do will affect the lives of the people you serve. Like any business, nonprofit organizations need to strategically plan their activities to succeed and determine the best approach to achieve their goals.

Our workshops are designed to provide early-stage and grassroots nonprofit organizations with the first infrastructure steps needed to run a successful organization based on best practices, understanding of the complexity of the sector and how to best serve their communities.

We will be hosting workshops throughout the year on different topics relevant to small and grassroots nonprofit organizations. Please feel free to post questions for us and we will reply or contact us through our web page.


This workshop is taught by the founder of Mockingbird Incubator. We will also invite experts on different related topics. Visit our web page for more information about us, our trainers and our programs.
