Let us take you on a tour of our nonprofit sector. This is your opportunity to become an integral part of building a healthy, united community – the community where you are raising your children, the community that has helped shape your life and where you are today.
We know that most people throughout the Central Coast give to 5-10 nonprofits. What if I told you that you have the potential to help all of them? This is where SPOKES – your community’s Nonprofit Resource Center comes into play. Our mission? To empower nonprofits to achieve their missions.
America’s nonprofits face pressing and growing threats. During these rapidly changing, uncertain times, SPOKES’ work is focused on helping community-based nonprofits thrive. Today’s nonprofits are faced with several hardships. Compliance laws are strict. Board members are frequently searching for more efficient ways to raise funds. Annual revenues for over one-third of our local nonprofits are under
$25,000. The fact is, hundreds of local nonprofits are struggling to survive, and few have a complete set of survival skills.
In the past three years alone, SPOKES has:
- Served over 300 nonprofit member organizations
- Hosted 128 workshops and roundtables for 951 individuals
- Delivered 583 hours of 1-on-1 consulting
- Saved Central Coast Nonprofits a total of $419,895
Spokes helps turn strong ideas, diligent efforts and generous support into more effective, efficient actions that bring better results and bigger benefits to our community. New situations or challenges? There’s no reason to reinvent the wheel. Through management training, consulting, and resources, SPOKES shows you what’s proven to work.
SPOKES wants to enlist YOU to become a “SPOKES Person.” Support SPOKES, support the nonprofits you love, make the nonprofit sector all that it can be, and join our ranks to strengthen our community.
