What We Offer

At Mission Triangle, we give nonprofits what they need most… tools to become proficient in the core competencies needed to be a healthy, sustainable, mature nonprofit. We are called to the Triangle area and thus want to be as generous as possible right here. As a result, Mission Triangle conducts and facilitates area-wide training and coaching for nonprofit leaders at no cost to the organization as a way to live out this mission.

ASSESSING:

to help provide metrics and evaluation to nonprofits and funders

Throughout the quarter, each participating organization has the opportunity to complete a self-assessment on the topic and work on a “growth plan” that will help propel the organization forward. From there, the organization can re-take the assessment on an annual basis and celebrate their growth and achievements. We will work with the organization on strategies towards communicating their growth and future opportunities to their supporters.

TRAINING:

to teach structure and systems to enhance efficiency

Training takes place on a quarterly rhythm throughout the year. These trainings are open to the public and the cost is covered by Mission Triangle champions. We do ask that all attendees complete a registration
 form that allows us to know their interest and any organizations they are representing.

 

Training has two parts: Core Competency Workshops and specific affiliated Small Groups.  Workshops are generally 3 hours in length and cover one of the six Mission Triangle core competency topics. The Baseline Health Assessment is woven into each workshop so that we can further identify the best way in which to serve the audience.  Following each workshop there are 3-5 Small Groups that generally occur once a week on topics associated with the corresponding workshop that need more attention.

IMPLEMENTING:

the “HOW” of our assessing and training – to help nonprofits combine data and processes to reach optimal organizational health

Once training and assessing has taken place, implementing happens in three ways – coaching, consulting, and/or granting. The way in which processes are implemented is determined by what your organization needs. At Mission Triangle, we desire to help you expand your Kingdom impact by guiding you as you take actionable steps towards organizational health in the six core competencies.

Coaching:

to lead and guide the application of efficient processes and procedures

Coaching is our opportunity to come alongside your organization and begin the implementation process! 1:1 coaching occurs by request of the organization’s leader and is usually 60-90 minutes in length. These meetings are also free of charge for those leaders who attended the training workshop. These sessions will serve two main purposes: to dive deeper on next steps related to the quarterly Core Competency and to work through any other key topics that the leader feels needs to be addressed.

 

Please reach out to Monica Pigues (mpigues@missiontriangle.org) to schedule your next coaching session.

Consulting:

individualized consulting dedicated to your nonprofit’s needs

From time to time, organizations need to engage Mission Triangle in different and deeper ways. In order to meet these needs, Mission Triangle sets aside time for “Fee-for-Service” Consulting. Triangle-based nonprofits have priority, but organizations outside the Triangle are welcome to contact us for further discussion.

Granting:

community impact through strategic matching grants

In order to enhance the stability of an organization and leverage community resources, Mission Triangle is excited to offer strategic matching grants to those organizations that participate in Mission Triangle services and meet the requirements set forth. Note that in general, there is a 1-2 year process of working closely together that precedes any such grants.
