Welcome to Nonprofit SideKick!

Nonprofit leadership is lonely. You could use a sidekick.

Balancing the big picture of fulfilling an important mission with the day to day reality of running a nonprofit is both art and science. It's also a bit lonely. 

We could all use a sidekick to help us along the way.

Nonprofit SideKick! is an online community for nonprofit leaders to connect, learn and support each other as we work to make the world a better place. Whether your organization's budget is $2,000 or $2,000,000 - Nonprofit SideKick! is here to help, everyday.

Nonprofit SideKick! helps to:

  1. Develop your leadership skills - you will make better, more well-informed decisions about the things that are most important to you.
  2. Breakdown the isolation so common in nonprofit leadership - you will meet other folks who are running nonprofits and swap stories, experiences and ideas around our shared mission of making the world a better place.
  3. Realize the full potential of your organization’s mission - you will find a little inspiration, tools and resources, thought-provoking conversations, and perspective each and every day to help you make a greater impact in your community.

Membership Gives You Access to:

  • A virtual community of peers that will support you as you work to be the best nonprofit leader you can be.
  • Online workshops, Expert Q&As, and other events to support and develop you as a nonprofit leader.
  • Weekly Huddles - meet-ups for nonprofit leaders that have no agenda, just support for one another's wins, concerns, challenges. 
  • Resources, templates and samples of policies, procedures, reports, etc.

Can you imagine a place where you can safely ask questions about nonprofit leadership any time of the day or night and quickly get friendly answers from experts and peer support?

A place where you can find and share samples, resources and templates to make your job easier?

A place where you can find on-demand and live workshops that help you develop as a professional nonprofit leader?

We support each other, develop our skills together, share resources and help each other crush goals.

Whether it is raising more money, fine tuning your programs, building a high-function board - whatever your big goals may be - the SideKick! community is here to help you reach them.
