UnidosNow will participate in Margin & Mission Ignition 2018, an initiative of The Patterson Foundation designed to strengthen entrepreneurial capacity and increase nonprofit mission impact through the development and implementation of earned-income strategies.
UnidosNow, which was one of five regional organizations selected for Margin & Mission Ignition, will participate in the 30-month consulting process with No Margin, No Mission, a social enterprise and national consulting firm engaged by The Patterson Foundation that will work with the nonprofits to develop and implement business plans for revenue-generating ventures.
Luz Corcuera, executive director of UnidosNow, said, “This is not only a unique learning opportunity, but a venture that will allow us to expand our programming to a larger part of the population while continuing to focus on our mission.”
“Margin & Mission Ignition has served as a platform for nonprofits to learn and take the evolutionary steps necessary to become thrivable, sustainable organizations with greater impact in our region,” said Debra Jacobs, president and CEO of The Patterson Foundation. “The leadership, willingness, readiness, capacity and culture demonstrated by this cohort will facilitate their efforts to strengthen their entrepreneurial capacity over this 30-month process.”
