Sharpening Our Skills: Getting Down to the Full Costs of the Nonprofit Mission

Tue, March 28, 2017 -
9:00am to 12:00pm
Los Angeles

oin AAPIP Los Angeles as we dive into sharpening our funder skills of understanding the full cost of mission delivery for a nonprofit. This professional development session is meant for foundation staff looking to deepen their understanding of nonprofit full cost. How do we move beyond yearly expenses and into the other costs nonprofits must cover in order to meet the needs of their communities? There is sector-wide agreement that overhead costs are necessary for nonprofits to deliver quality programs, but only 7% of nonprofits report that their foundation funders always cover the full cost of delivering programs (Nonprofit Finance Fund State of the Nonprofit Sector 2015 Survey). In this highly interactive session designed for strengthening the skillset of foundation staff, Nonprofit Finance Fund will lead participants to:

  • Deepen their understanding of the full cost for nonprofits to achieve their missions

  • Broaden their skills in communicating about the cost of achieving mission with grantees and other nonprofit organizations

  • Grow their network of peers to discuss and share challenges, lessons learned and best practices

This workshop will be held in the large meeting room at the Joan Palevsky Center for the Future of Los Angeles. Light refreshments will be provided by the California Community Foundation. Please confirm your attendance by Thursday, March 23. You can contact Annie Chang at achang [at] or Chris Hubbard at chubbard [at] if you have any questions.

We look forward to engaging with each of you on March 28th.

*Let's grow our community! Please share this opportunity with others you think would be interested in attending.
