Third Cohort of Jumpstart Fundraising Accelerator Program Set to Start

After two successful prior cycles, the Community Foundation of the North State in partnership with Network for Good is pleased to announce the six North State nonprofits selected to participate in the third cohort of the Jumpstart Fundraising Accelerator.

Jumpstart is an immersive and innovative yearlong program that pairs nonprofits 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 giving.

Over the course of two years of implementation, the 12 participating nonprofits raised a combined $175,067 in net new revenue. This model of success spurred a large number of applicants for the third cohort.

The 2023 participating nonprofits include:

Haven Humane Society

Hill Country Clinic

FaithWorks Community Coalition 

Pasture Raised Kids – The Farm School

Tiny Mighty & Strong

Youth Empowerment Siskiyou

Sponsored participation is made possible thanks to generous support from The Community Foundation of the North State, The McConnell Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, and the Patricia D. and William B. Smullin Foundation.
