UAC is Regional Foundation Center's March Spotlight

February 22, 2018

UAC is the Regional Foundation Center's March Spotlight, a feature of their monthly newsletter that stems from the Business Resource & Innovation Center (BRIC) at the Free Library of Philadelphia Central Branch.

UAC's Senior Partnership Manager, Tivoni Devor, partners with BRIC to host free Fiscal Sponsorship Workshops at the Free Library. These workshops demonstrate how fiscal sponsorship is a great way to quickly start and incubate a nonprofit.

Read the full March Spotlight from the Regional Foundation Center's newsletter below:

This month we are excited to feature Urban Affairs Coalition! Tivoni Devor, Manager of Partnerships and Outreach at UAC, tells us about how Urban Affairs Coalition supports the local nonprofit community. 
How does your organization support the nonprofit community?
Through our Fiscal Sponsorship and Shared Service offerings, UAC strengthens the nonprofit sector. We save organizations time, money, and resources. We help organizations grow through efficiencies and economies of scale.

What does your organization do best?
UAC helps nonprofit organizations strengthen their infrastructure, build capacity, and maximize community impact.

Are there any future plans/programs you would like to highlight?
The 2018 applications for the Summer Youth Employment program are now open, the program provides young people career-connected education designed to create long-lasting relationships while gaining the critical 21st century skills that are foundational to entering the workforce. It's critically important that
students sign up for this program now to get ready for the summer.
What's your best piece of advice for nonprofits?
Don't try to do your work alone. The problems we face are far too complex for one entity to solve on its own. It takes deep community roots and strong linkages to public and private groups allow us to bring together a diverse set of resources around specific issues to drive change from the ground up. The Power of Coalition means that, together, we can accomplish what no one organization can do alone.

Thanks for all the information, Tivoni!  Interested in learning more about fiscal sposnorship? Tivoni will be presenting Fiscal Sponsorship 101 at the RFC on March 15.
