About the Program
SNI acknowledges disparities in lending and provides resources and tools to increase capacity and build connections to networks. The program consists of a 14-month curriculum that includes training sessions focused on team-based nonprofit financial management, as well as with peer learning, one-on-one financial coaching, customized real estate consulting, and special networking opportunities. SNI is offered through the Midwest, with cohorts based in Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, St. Louis, and Kansas City. Each cohort is comprised of 3-4 leaders from each of 10 nonprofit organizations that attend all the workshops together and engage in peer learning.
The program includes:
One-on-one coaching with financial and real estate professionals focuses on leadership development, facility planning, and long-term organizational change – tailored to address each organization’s specific needs.
Our facility reviews are a big boost for nonprofit leaders who may not have experience leading organizations through a relocation or renovation, and we offer affordable financing for facility projects.
