KristenCreating the CRCS: Planning and Executing Nonprofit Projects
The Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary (CRCS), is a rapidly growing 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Kristen started this business on her own and raised seed money by putting coins in a jar. Now, CRCS has 11 employees, has been able to purchase 14,000 sq. ft. of commercial space, has begun a multi-million dollar renovation project and the thing Kristen is most proud of...... CRCS has gained enough respect in the industry and made such a name for itself that they get requests for help from top shelters across the United States and around the world. They have taken dogs in from as far away as Iran and as close as Canada and Mexico. Support in the way of donations has grown at just over a 1000% from year one. This year, CRCS will reach the half a million-dollar mark and is far from done in terms of growing. This rapid growth is the result of many different projects including successes, failures, and lessons learned. Kristen will describe her journey and how she led a team of employees, donors, supporters, volunteers (and the hundreds of dogs that came into her care) to stay focused and on course through it all.
