Training

RLA designed and delivers The Grantsmanship Center's Earned Income Strategies workshop throughout the USA. Earned Income Strategies is an intensive, three-day workshop that shows organizations how they can advance their social missions through entrepreneurial, earned income strategies.

During this session, participants:

  • Review case studies and best practices for social enterprises
  • Assess their organization's readiness for earned income strategies
  • Brainstorm a comprehensive list of earned income ideas
  • Do an initial feasibility assessment of their selected ideas
  • Get feedback on their ideas from the instructor and other participants
  • Learn about business planning, financing and implementation
  • Identify and commit to actions to move forward with after the workshop

To register and for more information on this workshop, contact The Grantsmanship Center at 213.482.9860, or visit them on the web at www.tgci.com.

  • Training (e.g., how to do market research)
  • Analysis (e.g., perform a marketing audit of an existing venture)
  • Planning (e.g., guide you through a strategic, feasibility testing or business planning process)

Public Radio

Rolfe Larson carries out projects in the public radio field through his affiliation with Public Radio Capital. Major projects include playing the lead role in PRC!s “Noncommercial Filing Window” project in 2007-08, which was supported through grants from the Ford and Surdna Foundations, which led to approval of construction permits for more than 100 new public radio stations, including at least thirty Native American or African-American applicants.

A second major project in 2009 involved strategic planning for four public radio stations as part of the Leadership for Philanthropy project, coordinated through DEI!s Leadership for Philanthropy Project and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
