Up to twelve times per year, we select an innovative, early-stage St. Petersburg nonprofit to join Catalyst for Good. During the C4G program, our Engagement Director will guide the organization through five phases of development. Within each phase the nonprofit founders will access senior level advisement, and our talented team of producers.
Our purpose is to focus our strongest minds on the initiatives with the most potential, working alongside the nonprofits as they grow. Our hypothesis is that while some incubator programs offer broad education and others specific skills, a startup nonprofit requires customized guidance AND delivered work, specifically formulated to break through the strong gravity of its early stages. We will test our hypothesis with the most innovative and impactful organizations in our community.
The C4G program was designed to offer unique support to nonprofits with a heavy emphasis on deliverables. Education and coaching are essential and we have assembled a formidable team of experts. We take it further. We will build as we teach. Founders will learn how to write a grant as we write a grant for them. They will learn about marketing as we build their website and social media presence for them. They will learn about accounting and banking as we set up their financial infrastructure and do the accounting for them. And so on. Wherever we can do it for them while teaching, we will.
