We recognize that shared opportunities lead to greater expertise and maximize the resources of new and established programs and we are committed to offering professional and relevant training in our nonprofit community every year In the 2019 season of our training series (generously supported by The Ausherman Family Foundation), we partner with seasoned professionals in the industry and offer at least 6 free sessions every year.

Through our strategic support initiatives, we strengthen local nonprofits, helping them make connections with one another, maintaining an open-door policy for assistance with organizational and programmatic development, offering professional development training opportunities for staff, volunteers and board members, and advocating on behalf of the industry with the larger community. We are a member of the National Nonprofit Centers Network, the Chamber of Commerce Nonprofit Alliance, the National Network of Fiscal Sponsors, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals. We participate in several working groups in the community, raising awareness of the nonprofit sector and we provide direct programmatic assistance to other organizations to help them develop sustainable projects to benefit Frederick residents.
In addition to regularly scheduled “office hours” in our co-work space, we are pleased to offer the following learning opportunities in 2019 (all sessions are FREE!)
Our Next Session:
(please note a follow up accountability session is scheduled for February 19th. Please mark your calendar for both sessions)
Figuring out how to appreciate your donors can sometimes seem like one more thing on your plate but you can be a superhero by planning a few small and unique donor thanks yous over the course of a year. We all know it's easier to keep donors than it is to attract new ones. Ashley Waters will help you design a plan to keep donors by stewarding and appreciating their commitment to our organizations on a consistent basis. Dr. Waters has a background in higher education but her true passion is nonprofit work and she has served as a consultant to countless organizations in Frederick...large and small...so she truly understands the challenges of working in the field - with a small staff and limited resources.
Session includes a light continental breakfast.
