Director of Partnerships and Programs at Scale Collaborative, Kristi Rivait, is featured in the CharityVillage Connects podcast. The podcast, hosted by CharityVillage President Mary Barroll, explores how and why Canada’s non-profit sector is shifting to embrace different funding models and revenue sources.

Hear about how Canadian non-profits can benefit from examining their operations from top to bottom and reviewing revenue sources while reframing their mindsets around how to run their organization, especially after feeling the impacts of COVID-19. Many of the financial diversification strategies discussed in the podcast are explored in the Thriving Non-Profits program that Scale Collaborative developed and delivers, including bringing in more earned revenue streams through avenues like fee for service and social enterprise. It was great to hear some discussion around Thrive Impact Fund and how impact investing and receiving patient and flexible capital can help non-profits get their impact projects off the ground.

The roster of guests includes:
Kristi Rivait, Co-Founder of Scale Collaborative
Elisa Birnbaum, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of SEE Change Magazine
Dan Kershaw, Executive Director of Furniture Bank
Mark Blumberg, Partner at Blumberg Segal LLP
The Honourable Ratna Omidvar, C.M., O.Ont Senator for Ontario, Senate of Canada
