S1E22 - Funding Come Through Programming
Latest episode of Nonprofit Biz Talk™ Nothing significant happens in a nonprofit organization without well thought out and implemented programs. Programs are the lifeblood of every nonprofit organization. It is one of the most important markers for the good done in the community you serve. Moreover, it is one of the areas where funders determine if the organization is worthy of being funded. Let’s listen to Nonprofit Success Strategist, Tykeysha “Ty” Boone break it done for us. ABOUT THE GUEST: The Nonprofit Success Strategist, Tykeysha “Ty” Boone, MPH, CNC, is a wife and home-schooling mom with three children; serves her community as a published author, speaker, volunteer SCORE Mentor, and nonprofit success strategist. With nearly 20 years of experience in academic and clinical research, community program planning, and nonprofit management and development, Ty has a reputation for helping people secure and sustain nonprofit status without the traditional headache or hassle, while equipping them with the tools necessary to increase their capacity for nonprofit success. Ty is a Certified Nonprofit Consultant and holds formal degrees and training in psychology, public health, and community health education. Ty’s work in the academic/research institution setting proved pivotal in helping to establish and sustain relationships between the university and its community partners. It was during this work that Ty observed the desire of community-based organizations to reap the benefits that came along with having major partners or securing substantial amounts of funding. However, many of them either lacked the capacity or were not properly positioned to do so. As a result of wanting to work more closely with the community, Ty became department director for a community-based AIDS service organization. Under her leadership, the organization reached new and improved levels of community outreach, solidified relations with organizations such as the United Way, more successfully diversified funding efforts, and developed new partnerships and increased capacity, which ultimately resulted in millions in funding from federally recognized agencies including CDC and SAMHSA. Ty is the owner and chief consultant at Ty Boone Enterprises. She is published in several peer-reviewed journals and is the author of Show Me the Money: Quick Reference Guide to Funding your Nonprofit.
