The CICF Not-for-Profit Toolkit was designed to offer support to community not-for-profits. It is a concise, curated collection of practical tools and information about many aspects of leading and operating a small- to mid-sized not-for-profit in Central Indiana. These resources can help your not-for-profit elevate the voices and needs of the people you serve while you strengthen your operations and financial stability.
- Have you wondered where to start if you have a question about fundraising? What if your not-for-profit wants to support a particular bill in the state legislature – can a not-for-profit do that? You can quickly find those answers here.
- Could you use a simple tool to help you prioritize your not-for-profit’s programs? Find an easy to use matrix mapping tool here in the organizational growth section.
- Is it time for your board’s annual review of your performance? Locate a simple evaluation form as a starting point for your board.
While you could google this information, you would find dozens—or even hundreds—of resources under each topic, with varying levels of credibility. These 75 resources are curated by field experts, and include articles to provide context, planning and management tools. Some, particularly legal and human resources, are Indiana focused. Updates will occur periodically to ensure relevancy.
