We use a four-phase process to support our CORE Causes.
PHASE 1: COMPLETE A CORE CAUSE APPLICATION
Please complete our short questionnaire. We look forward to hearing about your charitable idea!
PHASE 2: INQUIRY PHASE
If we feel that your charitable idea falls within our mission, a member of our team will schedule a zoom appointment. During this phase, we will work with the project team to develop a budget and business plan. This phase concludes with an internal decision as to whether we can support and invest resources into your project. This process can happen quickly depending on the preparedness of the CORE Cause candidate.
PHASE 3: ONBOARDING
In phase three, we welcome you to the CORE family after signing your project’s agreement which defines roles, responsibilities and expectations of both parties. We then work to set up the administrative back office which will provide the foundation to your project. Mentoring and training calls will be set, and you will work closely with our staff during this period.
PHASE 4: DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH
Some Causes stay with CORE for a pop up project or event while others stay for years. Others are looking to use CORE as a launching pad to become a 501(c)3 learning critical skills to ensure success. We support all of these goals. During the life of the CORE Cause, the executive sponsor, CORE staff and CORE Cause leaders work together to understand progress and the challenges of ongoing work. We maintain consistent communication and invite our organizations to share feedback early and often.
At the end of each year, the CORE Cause is responsible for submitting an impact report that summarizes the results achieved and lessons learned.
