The services we offer members are: access to non-profit knowledge and expertise via our blog, Q&A section for members to ask questions and respond to questions along with the moderator, an opportunity to discuss non-profit issues with other non-profits in an open forum, a partnership listing for organizations to connect and find partners to work on specific non-profit projects and a list of funders that offer grants to non-profit organizations. Through EFI non-profits can hire a consultant to do a variety of strategic planning and organizational management tasks for them. Please visit http://envisioningthefutureintl.ca/find-savings/our-services/ for a full list of our services.
For the small non-profits and community groups that can’t afford to hire a consultant, we have developed our first in a series of “Virtual Toolboxes”. Each “Virtual Toolbox” provides step by step instructions in layman’s terms to address needs of non-profits. Our first toolbox is the “Skills and Needs Survey Virtual Toolbox”. It can be used to do a community assessment in your community or with your target group. It can be purchased in bundles which allows you to purchase only the portions that you do not have the capacity to do within your group. Or, if you wish to purchase the entire “Virtual Toolbox” you will have savings of $127 or over 10% by purchasing the bundles separately. For additional information on the “Virtual Toolboxes” please visit http://envisioningthefutureintl.ca/online-store/toolbox-products/complete-skills-and-needs-survey-virtual-toolbox-%e2%80%93-basic-model/ .
