Thriving Non-Profits

It is very easy to fall into a silo when you are trying to fund your organization day to day and this cohort experience allows you to break away from that constraint and think more along a long-term horizon.” – Robert Bateman Foundation

The Victoria Foundation, in partnership with Scale Collaborative, is pleased to announce the return of Thriving Non-Profits.

Now entering its fourth year, Thriving Non-Profits is a cohort program for organizations looking to increase their financial sustainability and deepen their impact by developing a range of strategies.

  • Social Enterprise
  • Capital Grants
  • Corporate Partnerships
  • Fee for Service
  • Social Purpose Real Estate
  • Multi-Year Funding

Which combination is right for your organization?

Join more than 20 previous participating organizations in the movement to shift the community sector culture from scarcity to abundance, and from short-term projects to long-term outcomes. Many past participants have successfully implemented strategies developed by their organization during the program and maintain valuable connections with other leaders for ongoing support.
