Would You Invest a Few Hundred Dollars and a Little Time to Impress Your Board and Capture Larger Donations?

Nonprofits want more funding. Funders want more confidence. More confidence comes from demonstrated operational competence. Funders with more confidence give more. Operational competence can be measured and improved.

According to Overcoming Barriers to Giving, Fidelity Charitable’s latest study of over 3,200 donors, 64% of donors want to give more. While your donors may have other questions and concerns, demonstrating your nonprofit’s effectiveness has the greatest potential of encouraging your funders to increase their gift size and/or giving frequency. 

After thousands of hours of research, writing, review and testing from over 30 dedicated nonprofit executives, funders, industry professionals and nonprofits of all sizes and specialty, a suite of smart online tools has been developed to measure and improve your nonprofit’s operational competence.

Introducing OpX360®

OpX360®is like a $50,000+ consulting engagement without the cost or the weeks of discovery involved. Instead the program is comprised of six online modules; one for each of the areas of operations of a nonprofit organization. 

Pricing starts at $395 and each module takes less than 60 minutes to complete.

Each OpX360® module has 60 Best Practice statements based on proven industry standards to help your nonprofit determine your current level of competence in any of the six operational areas of their organization. 

The tool also gives you a score that you can measure and improve, helps you understand the consequences for non-performance and what you can immediately do to improve any areas that are underperforming.

Within one hour of completing any of the six modules, you will receive an Executive Briefing designed to be shared with your executives, board or funders and a 70+ page Detailed Report addressing all 60 Best Practice statements for the person or team responsible for the specific area of operations.

CPA and Nonprofit Leader Jim McKee said, “We’ve paid consultants many thousands of dollars in recent years. For a fraction of the cost, OpX360® provided us with more focused feedback, recommendations, and actionable steps for improvement than our consultants ever have.”

Any of these assessments can be taken individually or together, depending on the needs of your organization. 

The six areas of nonprofit operations are:

  • Finance & Accounting 
  • Governance, Legal & Risk Management 
  • Fundraising, Marketing & Communications 
  • Program Management & Accountability 
  • People & Organizational Development 
  • Business Systems, IT & Facilities

OpX360® is available with tiered and bundled pricing in order to provide access to the largest number of nonprofit organizations regardless of size. For more information, please visit www.opx360.com. Partial and full scholarships are also available.
