Non-profit organizations that need help with organizational development can now access Columbia Basin Trust’s new Non-profit Support Program. This program offers Basin non-profits a new approach to help increase capacity, become more sustainable and become more efficient.

CBT non-profit support

“Non-profit organizations are vital to our well-being in the Basin—from providing activities for our children, to helping care for our seniors, to protecting our environment,” said Lisa Kilpatrick, Columbia Basin Trust Director, Senior Manager, Delivery of Benefits. “This new program helps a non-profit of any size or sector strengthen its internal structure, giving it the foundation it needs to be able to focus on its primary purpose.”

The program offers expertise in areas like planning and direction, human resources, financial management, governance and community relationships. In addition to providing information resources, the program can connect the non-profit with an advisor who will assess the organization and provide recommendations. Where the advisor determines additional specialized consulting support is needed, the program may subsidize those services.

Eligibility is open to all Basin-based and registered non-profit organizations that actively deliver programs that support broad public good (not programs that primarily benefit membership) in the Columbia Basin region.
