New Strategies is an advanced education program unlike any other program for nonprofit leaders. Focusing exclusively on how to bolster and manage revenue for growth and success, New Strategies begins with an intensive, four-day forum that is the gateway to an ongoing support system of practical ideas that work.
New Strategies is a proven success. Core elements of the program have been tested and refined since its launch in 2011. Instructors and facilitators include top-rated faculty members, nationally recognized experts in specialized fields such as cause marketing, fee-for-service revenue support, predictive analytics, and more. Classes are conducted at Georgetown University’s campus with special evening events featuring notable guest speakers held at venues unique to Washington, D.C.
The social issues that threaten our planet and our people have never been more complex. It’s not enough to have the best intentions – if you want to make an impact, then you need to have the best business skills and strategies. With our New Strategies Program for Nonprofit Executives, we provide an entire business school curriculum for nonprofit leaders who are seeking new tools and strategies to drive their enterprise forward. This program is unique in its in-depth business training, and in that every nonprofit leader is sponsored by a company, such as American Express, JP Morgan Chase, Johnson & Johnson, and Target.
“First, let me say that the emphasis on relationships was interwoven throughout the fabric of my New Strategies program experience – both from presenters as well as the peers I met. I have taken that with me, and at Smile Farms, relationships are what makes the difference between being in the community and being part of a community.”

New Strategies begins with an intensive four-day, hands-on executive forum. The forum is directed by leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropy fields, and Georgetown faculty and student teams provide additional depth. Following topical plenary sessions, participants meet in specially curated small-group facilitation groups where nonprofit leaders can determine how best to integrate funding concepts into their own strategic plans.

NEW STRATEGIES ALUMNI
Nonprofit leaders who participate in the New Strategies Forum become part of a national alumni network, which includes hundreds of organizations throughout the United States. Monthly communications and other services are made available through this network.
Alumni are kept informed about federal, state, and local government policy and tax revisions that impact funding and staffing decisions. The network enables past participants to share revenue-generating concepts that work – and those that fall short of expectations.
