Mission, Vision, Values & Theory of Change

Your Magnum Opus! Develop a compelling, inspiring, and guiding vision statement, mission statement, and values list. Then, it's time to articulate your Theory of Change

Create a
Funding Plan

Passion may have gotten you here, but fundraising keeps you going. It's everyone's responsibility to build financial sustainability. The best way to accomplish this is through community support.

Recruit an
Engaged Board

Your first board will likely be friends and fans of the founder. Being sustainable means intentionally recruiting the skill sets needed to take you to the next level. Keep the board engaged with onboarding that sets them up for success.

Connect With 
Your Peers

Collaboration is essential to maximizing impact and attracting grant funds. Network with other leaders in our private community. Exchange ideas and resources while getting moral support.

Design Programs

Designing your first program is like hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. Will they love it? Will there be enough? How will I get everyone served? Start small and build up to the full experience. Measure along the way.

Receive Live

Get your questions answered by a coach in a live video call. Coaching gives you an opportunity to gain clarity on a nuanced situation. Live coaching also builds relationships with experts.

Create an
Operating Plan

Those who fail to plan, plan to fail. (Thanks Ben Franklin!) Don't skip this step! Cast a 3 and 5-year strategic vision. Then, create a 12-month tactical operating plan to make progress towards that vision.

Access for 
Entire Board

Your learning journey is unlike anyone else's. Each board member has unique skill sets and roles that require unique learning paths. Get access for every board member for one budget-friendly prices.


Hey, y'all!

I'm Jenn Dimeck, and I have been part of the nonprofit sector for over 20 years, including owning a crazy successful nonprofit accounting practice. I have an MBA and am a Certified Nonprofit Accounting Professional. I have a fire in my belly for building capacity in nonprofit organizations. So much so, that I sold my firm to start this community.


I've combined my passions for efficient processes and useful financial reports with my nonprofit knowledge. Our community deserves sustainable organizations, and I'm here to show you how to build sustainability and avoid burnout! 

I don't teach theory! I teach practical ways to build strategies and give you tools that can be implemented immediately. You are not in this alone! I am here to guide you with live sessions and a strong community of peers.

A nonprofit startup that establishes a strong infrastructure early has FAR more stability and faster growth than one that doesn't.

Here are some founders who focused on infrastructure as a startup and are growing and thriving.


Doug Campbell, Founder

 Jenn mentored me throughout the [startup] process. I had a dream, and she helped me navigate the waters, both from a legal perspective and an accounting perspective.”


Kristi Miller, Founder

Jenn put into place the foundation for us to endure. Without her, we are just another program. With Jenn, we have all the potential we need for a great future.”


Jody Powers, Founder

Jenn has been with us from the beginning. With her help, we developed a business plan and recruited both a board and advisory committee. This was the foundation for our massive growth and program expansion.

Why did these founders spend time learning to build a strong infrastructure?

Because they realized spending time to build an effective board, procedures, systems, and budgets saved time spent on chasing mission creep, board member churn, inefficient decision-making, and sparse resources.

So instead of spending sleepless nights worrying about the latest crisis, they are spending time growing their impact and nurturing their supporters.

And the results speak for themselves...

Re-Vision is changing the missions team service model.

Doug now oversees operations in multiple villages. His in-country teams are capable of running the day-to-day while Doug champions their missions service model in churches in the US.

Amelia's Closet is expanding its social enterprise.

After serving women entering the workforce for several years, Jody took what she'd learned and rallied a team of professionals to volunteer for a new project - a social enterprise that employs those with disabilities.

with you.

The challenge with workshops is that I can only serve a small group. I knew more people could benefit from what I was teaching. That's why I developed Serve Better, and if you join us, I'd love to help you, too.
