Since 2015, RISE San Diego has been proud to offer the Project MOST program on behalf of the County of San Diego HHSA.

Project MOST features a monthly series of free, open entry/open exit trainings for staff, board members, and volunteers from nonprofits and small minority-owned businesses located throughout the County who are interested in building their organizational capacity to more effectively carry out their mission and ensure the sustainability of their organizations. Our diverse team of experienced and highly-knowledgeable training facilitators provides participants with information and resources in an interactive, small-group setting on a variety of topics important to success:

  • Business Planning

  • Market Analysis

  • Human Resources

  • Performance Management

  • Fundraising

  • Business Writing

  • Technology and Information Technology (IT) Services

  • Succession Planning

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Community Development and/or Consensus Building

  • Networking

  • Partnering with Other Organizations

  • Digital Marketing and/or Social Media

  • Board, Staff and/or Volunteer Development

  • Data and Evaluation

  • Fiscal Management

  • Contract Compliance and/or Stewardship

Through Project MOST, RISE also offers longer technical assistance courses for small emerging or recently established nonprofits and small businesses seeking to learn how to develop and implement a business or strategic plan. Representatives from 8-15 organizations form a cohort that meets twice a month where they learn the theory behind key program components, which they then put into practice as they build and execute their plans. These cohort sessions are complemented by technical assistance coaching, where participants work one-on-one with a coach to delve into the work. Technical assistance courses range in length from 6- to 9-months with new cohorts beginning periodically throughout the year and are free of charge for participants.


RISE San Diego has been a proud Live Well San Diego partner since 2017
