Growing a nonprofit organization from a start-up into a fully sustainable operation is dependent on having the appropriate administrative systems in place. Aligning your organization’s goals and objectives with a system that monitors your operations, and evaluates your outcomes with less effort may feel out of reach for a small or mid-sized nonprofit organization.

Last year, Meredith Richard, Executive Director of Musical Empowerment, engaged Mae Beale, CEO/Principal, Beale Street Solutions to help prepare her organization for a period of growth. They embarked on a process of assessing, planning, and designing tools to collect and analyze data. Along the way, they worked to adapt existing and building new software (including consumer relationship management (CRM) components) to track all the moving parts of their quickly growing organization within one, interconnected system.

During this workshop, Meredith and Mae will present on their journey to develop a customized, multidimensional system to organize and manage Musical Empowerment. During the course of this meeting, participants will;

  • Discuss the Musical Empowerment case study;
  • Learn the process involved in developing a customized system for nonprofit administration;
  • Consider the costs in terms of time, money, and training involved in restructuring your administrative operations.
