Cause Effective’s interactive workshops reach many groups at once – allowing us to engage with an extraordinary range of nonprofit leaders from many cultures, missions and geographic communities as they discover commonalities and differences.

Cause Effective’s trainings and coaching draw upon sophisticated governance and resource development analyses in the context of the real world of human relationships and busy schedules familiar to any adult group activity. We marry best practice to incremental change through group discussion and take-home applications. Participants don’t just absorb nonprofit management information; they work together to create a roadmap of next steps they can immediately apply.

Many funders have found that Cause Effective’s resource development trainings are a cost-effective means for helping grantees gain more economic independence. Nonprofits concur:

“There is no way I would have been able to afford this on my own – it would never have hit my radar screen. A lot of kudos to our funder for not just saying we needed to, but actually investing in helping us to diversify our funding.”

Cause Effective has delivered more than 300 workshops, some packaged with follow-up consulting, to over 8,000 nonprofit leaders in the past decade. Find out more about our workshops here.

Funding partners we have supported by offering workshops to their grantees include Dyson Foundation, The New York Community Trust, New York Women’s Foundation, and United Way.

“Cause Effective has been an incredible partner to The New York Women's Foundation for many years. Its intensive work with directors of development at our grantee partners has proven vital for our City's nonprofits to sustain and expand their impact.”
