About the SUSTAIN Initiative
Solutions that transform nonprofit organizations from donation-driven to Impact Organizations.
Better Fundraising is Not a Solution.
SUSTAIN is a multi-year program that gives nonprofit organizations the tools to shift its revenue model from reliance on donations to 100% sustainable earned income.
Specialized teams lead nonprofits through an innovative structured program.
Together, nonprofits discover, test, and implement sustainable business models.
Our approach mobilizes a whole community of people, capacities, and resources to support the creation of new long-term business models for the nonprofit.
A foundation sponsors a cohort of four nonprofit organizations
The overall impact to our community has been to create a buzz of excitement about what the potential of this effort can bring to not only the nonprofit, but to our entire community by way of economic development and a feeling of progressiveness.
South Central Industries' partnership with Impact City has proven to be extremely beneficial as SCI strives to reach 100% sustainability. Impact City is a major force in crafting our social enterprise model into a business that intentionally integrates social impact as a non-negotiable component. The focus, business acumen, and direction provided by Impact City has been priceless as SCI ventures to create financial independence.
