Preparation and arrangements for your attendance at New Strategies begins long before you arrive. Therefore, we ask that with your registration, you make a firm commitment to join us on campus. Any changes or cancellations MUST be made 30 days prior to the first day of the forum. Any changes or cancellations made after this time without mitigating circumstances or without naming a suitable alternate from your organization, may result in our inability to accommodate your or your organization's attendance at future sessions; your sponsor will be notified and asked to name another beneficiary.

New Strategies is an advanced education program conducted by Georgetown University’s Global Social Enterprise Initiative at the McDonough School of Business. Unlike other programs for nonprofit leaders, New Strategies focuses exclusively on how to bolster and manage revenue for growth and success.

The program begins with an intensive, four-day forum (September 11-14) that is the gateway to an ongoing support system of practical ideas that work.

Before each forum, instructors and MBA students undertake a full analysis of each participating organization to get a tailored picture of revenue activities and programming priorities. The curriculum is then crafted to take into account the specific funding challenges of each nonprofit participant. The forum is an intensive, hands-on experience directed by nationally recognized leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropy fields. Georgetown faculty and MBA teams provide additional depth. Topics include:

• Social media funding
• Earned income and UBIT
• Corporate support
• Predictive analytics

• Cause marketing
• Government funding
• Gifts in kind
• Database management

• Sponsorships
• Direct mail
• Impact investing
• Deferred giving

In addition to the plenary sessions, breakouts, and one-on-one counseling, each forum enlists outside speakers including public sector leaders (relevant to government funding and activities).

Following the forum, participants receive monthly communications and added training. A LinkedIn site for participants allows for progress reports, problem solving, and networking. Business and foundation sponsors are updated on all program developments.
