Margin & Mission Ignition


Executive Directors/CEOs, Board, and Staff members are invited to learn about a unique offering from The Patterson Foundation during a series of Zoom sessions about Margin & Mission Ignition, TPF's Thrivability initiative that helps nonprofits boost revenue and mission impact through earned-income and social enterprise.

Participants may choose to attend any or all of the four 1-hour virtual sessions scheduled during August and September, where they will be introduced to CEOs from organizations that have successfully launched or grown a mission-aligned entrepreneurial venture. Each one will provide a glimpse into their journey starting with an exploration of earned-income possibilities to vetting and selection to business planning and, ultimately, to implementation, launch, and outcomes. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how TPF's Margin & Mission Ignition initiative may benefit participating nonprofits.

While these business ventures may not directly align with the work of every nonprofit, it is the process that we hope will be valuable.

Whether your organization has an existing earned-income venture with potential for growth, is considering launching a completely new one, or would simply like to learn about the topic and explore possibilities, we hope you'll register for one or more of these sessions.

Registration is open to nonprofits with an operating budget of $750,000– $10 million that have an up-to-date profile in The Giving Partner and a home office in the four-county region.
