Sustainable Solutions


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.

How it works

One-on-one guidance provides needed support.

The program includes a structured process, project management, and recommendations for capital development.

Each organization works at its own pace. One-on-one coaching helps leaders tackle challenges.

  • 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.
