In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many nonprofit organizations in Orange County, Fla., were forced to close their doors and now the county is teaming up with a business school to help them get back on their feet, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The three-year, $4 million partnership with Rollins College's Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership will provide training in five key areas: impact measurement, innovation, financial management, fundraising, and risk management, per a press release.

"Despite increased demand for their services during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our community's nonprofit organizations were being adversely affected by the pandemic in potentially devastating ways, directly impacting essential services in Orange County," says Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings.

The program, called Empowering Good: A Nonprofit Capacity Building Project, will offer training for up to 36 nonprofit organizations every six months over the next three years.

It will also offer organizational assessments and coaching for up to another 15 organizations for a total of 261 nonprofits, starting in September 2022.

"This program will allow us to address pandemic and post-pandemic challenges as well as to help leaders position their organizations for long-term success," says Min Sun Kim, executive director of Dr. Deborah Crown, dean of the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College.
