Jumpstart Fundraising Accelerator Accepting Second Cohort

For Shasta, Siskiyou and Tehama County nonprofits interested in joining the second cohort of the
Jumpstart Fundraising Accelerator hosted by Network for Good the Community Foundation of the
North State is holding an informational webinar on February 24th from 11AM to 12PM.

Jumpstart is an immersive and innovative yearlong program that pairs non profits with a personal
fundraising coach, who meets with staff (virtually) twice per month to help in acquiring, retaining, and
upgrading individual donors. In addition to coaching, Jumpstart includes technology tools and
technical assistance, designed to help organizations execute strategies built with their coaches
fundraise more effectively during this period of uncertainty, and take advantage of heightened online

Over the past seven years, Jumpstart has been deployed nationally to help over 3,500 organizations,
including over 50 organizations across California, to raise an average of 27% more in new revenue
from individual donors

Thanks to generous support from The McConnell Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, and the
Patricia D. and William B. Smullin Foundation, the Community Foundation of the Nor th State will be
supporting six organizations in the spring cohort.

Inaugural 2021 participants included: Project Spark Studio, Rescue Ranch Inc, Empower Tehama,
Empire Recovery Center, Northern California Childhood Development Inc, and Butte Valley Drea m

“It was as though we had finally gotten our organization to the river, but we needed to cross over to
the other side in order to really grow as a nonprofit organization,” Project Spark Studio Executive
Producer Mark Pomerville recently told N etwork for Good. “ we are gaining more attention and
our network is expanding because we are more organized. We are developing stronger relationships
with our donors because we can see exactly what their relationship is with us and what has inspired
them to give.”
