Renaissance Marin will conduct an orientation on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 10 am for nonprofit agencies who need to supplement their existing revenues by creating a social enterprise. 

This program comes through the sponsorship of the Marin Community Foundation which saw a need to help many of its own grantees to diversify their revenues streams. 

Renaissance Marin will be launching this workshop on January 31 to the first 20 organizations that sign up and pay the low-cost tuition, based on a sliding scale. 

The workshop will provide:  

* Classroom instruction
* Real-world practices
* One-on-one assistance and 
* An opportunity to pitch your concepts to a panel of  experts.  

If you've explored taking a workshop on this very subject, you know the costs are upwards of $1500. 

In this workshop, the tuition costs: 

Annual Revenue                       Tuition
to $100,000                                  $100
$101,000 to $250,000                    $200
$251,000 to $500,000                    $300
$501,000 to $1,000,000                  $400
Over $1,000,000                            $500

The training will take place at the Renaissance Center Marin in San Rafael. It will run three hours per session, once a week on Thursdays at 10am for eight weeks. Following the class sessions, a number of hours have been reserved to provide one-on-one assistance to individual agencies to help them launch their enterprises. 

So, if your agency has been searching for new ways to generate revenue, we urge you to attend this orientation, meet the staff and the main instructor. We'll give you the full picture about the program because we all know that many nonprofits continue to operate at less-than adequate financial levels. 

Please RSVP to reserve your seat by calling 415.755.1115. Please note: this workshop is for Marin County Nonprofit Agencies only.
