El Sistema USA members benefit from our extensive offerings of resources and support.

There are many types of resources available to help guide you through the intricacies of starting and operating a non-profit. We have included a few links below, but if you are seeking resources pertaining to general non-profit management, such as obtaining 501(c)3 status, grant writing and fundraising, human resource management, board formation and management, etc., it would be most helpful to contact your own state’s center for non-profit management.  It’s also likely that a local university might have resources and individuals who would be able to assist in improving the day-to-day governance and operation of the organization.

Fundraising/Grant Resources

Members: Be sure to check out our Video Library and Store within the Member Portal for LOTS of useful Fundraising Webinars and supplemental materials.
