Jumpstart Fundraising Technical Assistance Grant – RSVP for a FREE Informational Town Hall Meeting Coming Up Oct. 24!

$19,300!

That’s how much funding IN NET-NEW DOLLARS FROM INDIVIDUAL DONORS nonprofits that graduate from the Jumpstart Fundraising Technical Assistance Grant Program are raising, on average, at the end of the 12-month training period!

Some Kern County nonprofits enrolled in Jumpstart since January of this year have already raised more money than they did in all of 2018!

This could be you!

Jumpstart is a fundraising technical assistance program that strengthens Kern County nonprofits by giving them access to hands-on coaching and the use of state-of-the-art fundraising software for one year at a greatly reduced tuition cost, thanks to generous funding from the Kern County Board of Supervisors.

The program helps to ensure participants’ sustainability by teaching them the skills to nurture and cultivate long-term relationships with individual donors, with a view toward diversifying funding streams and expanding unrestricted, general operating dollars that are not program-limited like grant funding.

Jumpstart is administered by fundraising technology and training giant Network for Good. In 2020, Kern Community Foundation will once again make the program available through a competitive grant opportunity open to Kern County Nonprofits that have not participated in Jumpstart in the past.

Join us to learn about whether your Kern County Nonprofit qualifies and how you can apply online through Kern Community Foundation.
