2019 JPMC Nonprofit Sustainability Cohort

Jenn Dodd

  • Matrix Map-Session 7
    June 9, 2020
    8:30 am - 3:30 pm




You’ll soon be embarking on an incredible learning journey, engaging in a mix of in-person and virtual sessions with assignments to be completed between sessions and enjoying support from nonprofit sustainability experts. (See SCHEDULE & OUTLINE below and on your cohort’s dedicated web page for details.)

While virtual sessions will be recorded, each team is required to make a commitment to attend as many as possible in person at the NLC to build cohesion within the cohort. The process is intensive, and participants will receive support from each other as well as Steve Zimmerman and his team.

Sustainability doesn’t come easily!


The cohort will launch on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at the Nonprofit Leadership Center.  The remaining sessions are outlined below with date and agenda items. The virtually facilitated sessions are 2 hours long, 2-4 pm; the in-person sessions will run from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Unless otherwise announced, all cohort meetings will take place at the Nonprofit Leadership Center.

All slide decks, files, resources, and webinar recordings will be uploaded here for teams to reference and access.  Please bookmark this page in your favorite browser.

The $5,000 cost of this program for each nonprofit is being generously underwritten by JPMorgan Chase & Co. Your organization will enjoy all the benefits of your leadership team participating in the Matrix Map cohort at no cost to your nonprofit. 

To demonstrate your commitment, we do ask for a $275 deposit, which, at completion of the Nonprofit Sustainability Cohort program, can be redeemed in the form of 4 seats in any $69 half-day NLC training.
