In October 2019, GCEF hosted 2 organizational sustainability workshops designed to help grantees continue their work in Greenpoint. The workshops were organized by representatives from TCC Group, New York City’s premier non-profit management consultant. Many of the grantees in attendance were already familiar with TCC Group after engaging with their proven organizational enhancement tool designed to assess their group’s strengths and challenges – the Core Capacity Assessment Tool (also known as a “CCAT”).
A total of 22 participants from 15 organizations gathered at the two separate 5 hour workshops held at Dupont Street Senior Center in Greenpoint. Topics covered included strategic roadmap creation, proximal planning for the next 1-3 years, ability to demonstrate organizational progress towards goal accomplishment and effective message crafting and creation of a compelling case for support.
