Fair Chance DC Partnership

fairchanceWe are pleased to announce that Teaching for Change was selected by Fair Chance as one of six new partners for organizational development assistance in 2013. Fair Chance’s mission is to “partner with promising community-based nonprofits serving children, youth and families in Washington, D.C to improve their capacity, strengthen their sustainability, impact and success.”

This was a competitive multi-step application process involving interviews with the Teaching for Change board and staff. As a partner, we will receive expert help with financial management and analysis, fundraising, board development, leadership development, strategic planning, outreach, communications, and more.

Our Fair Chance capacity builder, Jessica Solomon, has a background in non-profit management and the arts.  She will meet with us weekly for an entire year, beginning with a thorough organizational assessment and developing a comprehensive work plan. While it will take a lot of our leadership staff’s time, we will have a stronger and more effective organization as a result.
