This webinar will showcase the new TechHire Sustainability toolkit for TechHire grantees.

 

Description

This webinar will review new tools for TechHire grantees, Beyond the Dollars: A Multifaceted Approach to Sustainability  and the Funding Analysis Tool.

Beyond the Dollars breaks sustainability down into five core elements:

  1. Organizational Infrastructure and Sustaining Capacity;
  2. Partnerships and Networks;
  3. Outreach and Telling Your Story;
  4. Funding and Resource Analysis; and
  5. Preparing for the Future of Work.

It provides overall guidance for sustainability planning and guiding questions with resources for each section.  It also contains a Sustainability Plan template for TechHire grantees to use.

Accompanying Beyond the Dollars is the Funding Analysis Tool, an Excel template that can be used by programs for budgeting and financial analysis.  For sustainability, it is important to know where funding shortfalls may appear and where funding surpluses may exist as well.  The Funding Analysis Tool allows you to match multiple funding sources against line items for a single or for multiple programs in an easy-to-use format.  This tool allows you to compile the information you have on funding and expenses in one place in order to create budgets, make plans for fundraising or to develop internal financial reports.

We walk through both tools on the webinar, answer questions and help TechHire programs decide what may be next for them in addressing sustainability.  In addition, a pre-recorded demonstration of the guide and tools will be shared ahead of the webinar as a resource for grantees who are unable to attend and a refresher for grantees to reference after the webinar.
