Nonprofit Leadership Workshop Series
We’ve teamed up with our friends at the Community Foundation of Noble County and Crossroads United Way to host an annual series of presentations designed to help make nonprofit leaders, board members, and their organizations stronger.
For 2022, the Nonprofit Leadership Workshop Series will continue with its virtual format. Four presentations are scheduled, each featuring experts that will share their insights and tips:
- Feb. 10 — Program Development
- March 10 — Evaluation
- April 14 — Fundraising & Donor Development
- May 12 — Grantwriting
Each of the sessions will start at 9 a.m. Eastern time. The cost for the full series is $40, or $10 for each session. To register, just click here.
In addition, a half-day, in-person workshop will be held Sept. 15 at the Community Learning Center in Kendallville. Those attending one of the virtual presentations will be entered in a drawing to receive 50% off attending the workshop. More information about the workshop will be announced at a later date.
For more information about the Nonprofit Leadership Workshop Series, contact Margarita White at the Community Foundation of Noble County, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Sarah Larkin at the Dekko Foundation, email@example.com.
