Applications for FCYO's Financial Management Technical Assistance Project (FMTAP).
The Funders' Collaborative on Youth Organizing (FCYO) is committed to increasing resources for youth led social change. Over the last two years there has been a significant decrease on foundation funding going toward youth organizing. In order to address this, FCYO is launching our Field Sustainability Project with two goals: 1) to develop a comprehensive philanthropic advocacy strategy in order to identify new funding sources for this work, and 2) to support youth organizing groups in becoming more effective and efficient with current resources.
In order to address this second goal, FCYO is launching the FMTAP. The overall goal of the project is to help key youth organizing groups that are facing financial challenges increase their capacity to understand their financial position and make informed decisions about how to sustain themselves over the next few years. This could include assisting groups to improve their financial management (budgeting, cash flow, etc.), helping groups make decisions about how to deal with budget cuts, or advising groups on new revenue generation strategies they are considering. FCYO heard from the field itself a recognition that strong financial management practices are an essential component of organizational survival during crises and as well as long-term sustainability.
