building nonprofit

our vision

we are committed to building a thriving nonprofit sector

RevJen Group is a social enterprise dedicated to the empowerment of nonprofit leaders and the organizations they serve. We partner with nonprofits, funders, and key stakeholders to provide revenue capacity-building training and professionally facilitated peer groups to the nonprofit sector.

We are neutral, independent, and work across a diverse set of missions – which puts us in the meaningful position of operating as a trusted collaborator and partner.

Originally launched as a consulting model, it quickly became clear that in order to achieve real equitable impact in the nonprofit community, organizations needed high-impact solutions that were more accessible and affordable than consulting. This realization set us on our path to provide nonprofit leaders with access to the knowledge, resources and support they need.

Our Solutions Meet the Nonprofit Sector’s Most Pressing Challenges.

We are committed to reframing the narrative around the value and importance of leadership, revenue sustainability, and community. Our solutions seek to combat three long-standing, pervasive, interlinked sector issues:

  • Financial Sustainability. Organizations frequently lack the ability to develop reliable, repeatable revenue that sustains the organization and its mission.
  • Leadership Isolation and Burnout. The nonprofit sector is filled with passionate leaders who don’t believe they can invest in themselves, leading to feelings of isolation and burnout.
  • Development Talent Turnover. It is therefore not surprising that sector leaders are turning over in record numbers.

Our proven solutions have armed hundreds of nonprofit leaders with the knowledge, resources and support necessary to tackle their biggest challenges and unleash the power of changemakers.

“the trajectory of my life has fueled my passion”

A letter from our founder 

Brian Joseph

CEO &
Co-Founder

Statistically, I should not be where I am today. I am the first generation of my family to not be born and raised on a reservation. Mine was the only American Indian family in the small, rural, midwestern town that I grew up in. I learned early in life that the color of your skin can impact the way you are viewed and treated.

I have attended so many workshops over, the years that I have become a bit jaded, but I have to say that the approach RevJen took in helping us develop our models was unique, interesting, and engaging.

dei statement

working through a lens of diversity, equity and inclusion

Community is the nucleus for change, and the cornerstone of our work at RevJen. We believe that together, we can drive the change necessary to solve long-standing sector challenges for good. We want to launch this movement by providing our solutions to leaders in communities and regions across the country, allowing them to take hold and grow.

We at RevJen are committed to the ongoing process of self-examination, training, and evaluation so that we may better understand and reform any policies, practices, or procedures that perpetuate structural oppression, and we strive to create a space for brave conversations and to provide a learning environment that uplifts marginalized voices and perspectives in all of our work. We strive to view our internal practices and external work through a lens of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and will lean into our definitions below as we continue on our DEI journey.

Diversity

Respecting, valuing, and appreciating what makes people different from one another – in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, socioeconomic status, marital status, language, physical appearance, and national origin – through conscious practice and active engagement with people of diverse backgrounds and identities. RevJen embraces the truth that each person is a unique collection of identities and that this diversity – including those who differ in their ideas, perspectives and values – ultimately strengthens and advances our mission.

Equity

Seeking fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while actively working to identify and eliminate barriers that prevent full participation of some groups. Equity is about increasing justice and fairness in institutions or systems – both in terms of procedures and processes as well as distribution of resources. Doing this requires an understanding of the root causes of outcome disparities within our society. RevJen’s mission is rooted in tackling some entrenched and pervasive issues in the nonprofit sector and we recognize that systemic racism and other forms of systemic oppression are intrinsically tied to access of resources and opportunity in the country. While RevJen seeks to accomplish its mission, we also recognize our role in removing barriers of access to our work to achieve equitable access in the sector.

Inclusion

Creating environments that welcome, respect, support and value the full participation of any individual or group. This means building a climate that embraces differences and offers respect in words and action – recognizing that a diverse group is not necessarily inclusive. RevJen recognizes that dismantling entrenched issues in the sector and achieving impact requires collaboration and the inclusion of many voices.
