Innovation Catalyst

Diversified revenue streams can sustain your organization for years to come.

The Innovation Catalyst (iCat) is a robust, immersive cohort-based program built to help nonprofit organizations develop new initiatives that improve their sustainability and mission impact.

Through a competitive application and interview process, CNM and CauseImpact will select a small cohort of organizations (Impact Teams) that are ready, willing, and able to commit the time, effort, and resources needed to support meaningful innovation. The program works at a pace designed for busy nonprofit leaders and boards.

Expert coaches and consultants from CauseImpact will guide a cohort of organizations as they clarify strategic priorities, improve sustainability, diversify revenue, and engage current funders and stakeholders in new and different ways.

The 2022-2023 Innovation Catalyst has been postponed. Stay tuned for updates!
