Overview

1 day, 20 organizations, maximum impact

Designed to leave nonprofit leaders energized and equipped, CauseMic Amplify is an in-person workshop that empowers leadership teams with practical tools to maximize revenue and enhance team effectiveness. 

Dive into frameworks and interactive sessions that seamlessly guide you from ideas to action. Hosted by the team at CauseMic, a Portland-based nonprofit consultancy leveraging a decade of insights to optimize your time and amplify your impact.

Get ready for a transformative experience. And expect to have some fun while we’re at it!

Who should attend from our organization?

CauseMic Amplify is tailored for 2-5 leaders from each organization. We recommend roles such as executive director/CEO, leaders in development/fundraising, marketing and communications, technology, or operations. Board members and major funders are also welcome.

What kinds of organizations are a good fit?

Typically, the tools and frameworks discussed are most beneficial for nonprofits with an annual revenue of at least $1M and a fundraising team of at least three professionals. Ideal for organizations whose leaders seek methodologies to unlock sustainable growth, embrace innovation, and prioritize progress over perfection.

What should attendees bring?

Your attention and curiosity. You may bring a notebook and/or your laptop to capture insights, but it will be an engaging day where multitasking is highly frowned upon, recognizing urgent matters do arise.

Got questions?

Give us a call at (503) 610-9144 or email us at crew@causemic.com and a teammate will get back to you asap.
