Deutsche Bank SA enabling Non-profits to do business for good

The move towards diversified income streams and sustainability of non-profit organisations (NPO) is the primary driver behind the Income Generation Programme designed and delivered by Deutsche Bank’s partner, TSiBA Education.  25 NPO leaders showcased their business models to generate funds for their entities in the fourth and final module of the third programme held on October 11 and 12, 2017.

 

“The tools learnt on the programme sparked ideas of what to do outside of the charity – of what is possible, came to life” said Stacey Doorly-Jones of 2nd Chance, a drug treatment and education NPO.  

 

2nd Chance is expanding their equine facilitated mentorship programme to offer a corporate equine facilitated programme, covering leadership and change management.

 

Most of the participating organisations acknowledged how the programme caused a change in mind set bringing about an awareness on how to generate income. Many diverse models were developed that included services or products unrelated to their charity, however linked to their network or location, such as an eco-camp, a furniture removal service company and even a mobile coffee shop.

“The importance of the story behind the product can easily get forgotten,” shared  Xelda Rohrbeck of Little Eden. The life-long adult residents, all with severe learning disabilities, are able to participate with the shelling of the pecan nuts grown on their farm.

 Through the programme, Little Eden developed a model to increase the 2.5% revenue generated from different agricultural products.

Under Deutsche Bank SA’s Made for Good enterprise programme the focus is on moving NPO’s towards sustainable models through diversifying their income streams. Over and above the NPO Income Generation Programme, Deutsche Bank partnered with Capacitate to develop two tools, Building Organisational Sustainability Handbook and Monitoring & Evaluations Handbook. A series of one day workshops have been held with NPOs around the launch of the handbooks. Both are invaluable resource materials on the Income Generation programme.
