What is the SF CBO Support Project?
A highly structured, semester‐long project offered through a graduate level course in nonprofit management in SF State’s MPA program (PA 746: Organizational Learning & Nonprofit Management).
The website has recently been updated with dates and other materials for the 2014 offering:  sfcbosupportproject.org

Why Participate?  How can my CBO Benefit?

Professional development for program staff
CBO Support Project Partners (CBO Partners) learn about nonprofit management trends, resources, and best practices from SF State’s MPA faculty and students.

Logic model development for your program
CBO Partners receive guided support from MPA faculty to develop/re-develop a logic model for their program. CBO Partners learn how the process and end results of logic models can be applied in support of program planning, delivery, communications, and/or evaluation

Increased knowledge and capacity to strengthen your program
Under the guidance of MPA faculty and CBO Partners, graduate student support teams create and implement work plans for the particular program needs identified by CBO Partners.

Partnership building with SF State’s MPA students and faculty
Participating CBO Partners will be able to express an interest in receiving additional support from MPA students and faculty at the end of the CBO Support Project.
