NRG serves organizations and coalitions throughout New Mexico and specializes in working with rural and frontier nonprofits and coalitions across the nation. We work with nonprofits/coalitions at any stage of the life-cycle, from conception to those that have operated for years. We work to meet your needs and within your budget. NRG has consulted with hundreds of nonprofits, coalitions, intermediaries, associations, public sector agencies and faith-based organizations.
NRG is committed to providing high-quality, affordable consulting and we offer special pricing for nonprofits and coalitions within certain geographic areas of New Mexico.
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your consulting needs.
The Nonprofit Organizational Capacity Assessment (NOCA) and the Coalition Capacity Assessment (CoCA), developed by NRG are the first step in any capacity building engagement. Unlike most tools, the NOCA and CoCA are designed not only to measure a static set of technical indicators, often inappropriate for community-based, informally-run rural organizations and groups, but also key indicators of resiliency: adaptive, collaborative, innovative and advocacy.
NRG’s assessments are administered by a trained facilitator in a group setting, creating a capacity building opportunity in and of itself. Other assessments are generally online, much more costly and simply aggregate the data into a report with no context or interpretation.
Assessments create a “road map” for shared learning within the client organization, and post assessments measure improvement in critical areas: leadership and governance, operations, programs, community engagement and racial equity.
With support from the Town of Silver City and others, NRG is able to provide the NOCA and CoCA assessments at a reduced cost to Grant County nonprofits.
Our training topics cover a wide array of nonprofit leadership and management issues, including governance, team development, resource development, marketing, outreach, community engagement and community coalitions. Our workshops offered primarily in southwestern New Mexico and can be mobile upon request. We are also fully equipped with distance learning technology and can provide webinars to participants in one or multiple locations.
Each year, The Nonprofit Resource Group develops a series of alternating 1-hour informational sessions and longer skill-building workshops for nonprofit organizations.
