Since 2012, Spring's Financial Innovation & Resilience program has supported leadership teams from over 200 social and climate justice organizations in over 40 countries. It is infused with experiences from organizations dealing with shrinking civic space as well as those working under more favourable circumstances, offering a rare opportunity to gain both global and local insights that can be applied in different contexts and organizations.
Your program will begin with a 3-day virtual intensive, where you will interactively explore and understand five key areas in relation to building financial strength: Funding Landscape, Resource Mobilization, Strategic Finance, External Communications and Leadership Practice. Through peer support and cross-learning, you will begin developing a FIRE action plan for your organization or network.
Following your 3-day virtual intensive, you will continue refining and implementing your action plan with 4 months of accompaniment in the form of thematic webinars, cross-learning sessions with other groups in your cohort, and a program completion session. To support your team's FIRE journey, you will have access to a suite of multimedia FIRE resources including animations, videos, and primers via Spring's FIRE Learning Lab.
