Nonprofit Workshop

Every April, Impact 100 Pensacola hosts a workshop open to all nonprofit organizations in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties as part of our mission “to know and serve the community.” The program includes an inspirational guest speaker, details of the grant cycle, application requirements and instructions, panel of previous grant recipients, and IMPACT 100 board members to answer your questions.  Due to the Coronavirus Stay at Home Order, the 2020 workshop was held in webinar format.

Cathy Brown is a resident of Pensacola, Florida, and holds the title of Associate Director of Education at The Fund Raising School (TFRS), Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University.  She currently serves as lead practitioner faculty for many of the face-to-face professional development courses as well as online courses.

Cathy has 15 years experience running small nonprofits and quasi-government agencies, as well as board and volunteer experience in a wide range of sub-sectors.  She has career experience in grant proposal writing and grant management.

Cathy presented “Building Blocks for Sustainable Success.”  She provided tips on how to build your board, tell your story and empower you to succeed.  Links to the webinar and additional documentation can be found below.
