A new program has launched to help Central Okanagan not-for-profits grow.
The Building Excellence and Sustainability Together Intensive (BESTI) is a cohort program that will provide a year-long training on capacity building, including developing stronger governance, management, administrative systems, financial resources and programs.
BESTI is offered through a partnership between Valley First, the Central Okanagan Foundation and the City of Kelowna.
“By working together, organizations will continue to strengthen their own capacity while looking for long-term sustainability to continue offering their valuable services to our region,” Valley First executive director Susan Byrom said.
The program will have local consultants lead not-for-profits through a process to develop a capacity enhancement plan. Participating organizations will also be awarded a $5,000 grant to start off their strategy building.
There will be a virtual information session on March 8 at noon, which interested organizations are encouraged to attend. To register for that session, click here.
