Charitable Ventures Helps Nonprofit Clients Address Social Challenges Through Our Capacity Building Services
In 2019, Charitable Ventures expanded its mission to include a vibrant slate of resource development, planning, evaluation, marketing and assessment activity for a growing Southern California nonprofit sector. Our expert consultants, evaluators, grant writers and project managers are dedicated to helping our nonprofit clients address social challenges through our capacity building services.
Evaluation and Needs Assessment
Can You Prove that Your Organization is Making a Difference?
One of the best – and often overlooked – ways that nonprofits can prove impact is through evaluation and reporting on its eﬀorts in the community. Investing in a strategic evaluation plan and process demonstrates to funders and other stakeholders that your program is making the diﬀerence you say it is, and that you are deploying resources where it matters most.
Planning, Assessment, and Facilitation
What is Your Organization’s Plan?
Vibrant, successful organizations and initiatives all have one thing in common: they are always planning, assessing, and facilitating important strategy discussions to foster growth and change. Effective planning processes are guided by rigorous standards, but must be uniquely customized to the needs of the organization. Small nonprofits have diﬀerent planning needs than larger nonprofits, and culture, leadership, mission and the policy environment all play a role in the formation of a strategic plan.
Grant Strategy, Design, and Production
Do You Have a Plan to Raise the Money You Need?
A successful grant program is critical to the sustainability and health of nonprofit organizations. Charitable Ventures helps raise millions of dollars each year for our nonprofit clients and projects. Because many nonprofits either do not have or cannot aﬀord, an internal development team, expert and outsourced development support is an ideal alternative.
Is Your Investment Making the Right Impact?
Serving as the public face for private and corporate philanthropy, Charitable Ventures provides administrative services and oversight for public grant cycles. We help develop strategic frameworks to guide philanthropic investment and increase social impact in our communities.
Marketing, Branding, and Communication
Are You Communicating Effectively about What You Do and Why You Do It?
Whether you are creating a stronger brand identity, meeting strategic development goals, or making a case for funding, Charitable Ventures helps nonprofits increase stakeholder investment and engagement through feasible communication strategies. Our marketing, branding, and communications services generate real returns by helping nonprofits clearly articulate their value and impact.
