Drawing upon 30 years of service in higher education as president and chief development officer, David Alexander comes alongside nonprofits to facilitate strategic planning, organize capital campaigns, develop effective governing boards, and provide candid counsel as an executive mentor.
Every nonprofit is driven by a vision. Realizing that vision creates a burden leaders must bear. Alexander Resource Strategies wants to assist you in your efforts to plan well, execute effectively and resource appropriately so you can meet the dreams of your board, the expectations of your stakeholders and the needs of your clients.
Alexander Resource Strategies works to foster vital organizational cultures. Alexander believes vital nonprofits operate within a rhythm of healthy habits, they:
Operating in Sandpoint, Selkirk Outdoor Leadership & Education (SOLE) has evolved since its inception in 2011. They have helped over 1,700 local area youth and have gained national recognition for their SnowSchool Experience program. SOLE is one of two organizations that have a National Flagship SnowSchool Site accreditation.
Founder and Executive Director, Dennison Webb, says “[Collaboration] serves our community’s and our grantors’ best interests. Simply put, when nonprofits team up collectively, we are able to do more, underpinned by the strengths of each organization.
“We partner with the Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center (IPAC) - to support our middle and high school SnowSchool Experience curriculum while provide avalanche education. We will [also] be collaborating with Y2Y to develop conservation literacy curriculum, which will include citizen-science efforts to monitor wildlife in key locations.”
I never profess to have all the answers to all the questions. I am humbly aware that, even a year into my job leading the Idaho Nonprofit Center, I will always be learning. Every day I swear I learn something new and valuable that I can put in my toolkit for future use.
I am also aware, now more than ever, that one of the most important aspects of our work at the Center is policy and advocacy. The second is to elevate and champion our work. The third is to provide the resources and training to help our nonprofit sector grow and become sustainable organizations. To that end, the INC also has a great responsibility of sharing what we learn with our nonprofit friends.
Our policy focus is on the broader nonprofit sector. We will advocate for things that could impact our sector as a whole. We will approach policy & advocacy in terms of how it impacts our nonprofits but we don’t often get a window seat view of how policy can impact one of our subsectors and the people that it serves.
