In a region as rich with nonprofits as ours, the state and sophistication of these organizations can vary widely. Same goes for the experience of volunteer board members in a place that’s always welcoming new, community-minded residents who want to be engaged.
Invest in Incredible – or I3 – is Gulf Coast’s initiative to help our region’s nonprofit organizations go (and grow) from being good at what they do to being incredible.
Through I3, we co-invest with nonprofits in professional consulting and other technical assistance so they can strengthen their operational effectiveness, management, and board governance.
We know that one size can’t fit all when it comes to a capacity-building program for our nonprofit community. Whether it’s “board governance 101” for a fresh wave of volunteers or an intensive consulting engagement for a good group on the cusp of great things, we strive to meet our nonprofit partners where they are.
To learn more about our I3 program, please read our program overview.
Certified Nonprofit Board Governance Consultants
Gulf Coast has partnered with a cadre of local consultants, all of whom completed a three-day training offered by BoardSource, the national expert in board governance, and are prepared to work with area nonprofits.
Our I3 consultants have diverse professional experience in both for-profit and nonprofit settings, with expertise in fundraising, strategic planning, financial analysis, organizational development, marketing, and more.
Incredible isn’t just an initiative to us. It’s everything. The staff and board members of your organizations are the stars of the work you do. So we say don’t just reach for the stars—invest in them! If you’re ready to invest in your own incredible, please tell us some more about your organization and what you think you need.
