Professional Development

In our nonprofit center we recognize that shared opportunities lead to greater expertise and maximize the resources of new and established programs. We are committed to offering professional and relevant training in our nonprofit community because we believe that professional education is ongoing and leads to greater engagement in our community. Every year  we partner with seasoned professionals in the industry to bring information and skills training to board members, staff and volunteers of local organizations.

Our sessions are FREE and designed for all levels of nonprofit development. Check this page for upcoming sessions and to catch what you’ve missed

Our thank you letters are a critical part of relationship building for our nonprofits (and no, they are not an opportunity to ask for additional money). When you write a thank you letter that is more than just the IRS language, you have an opportunity to engage your donors in your mission so the next time you ask, they will remember how good they felt giving before.

Coming in June!

Small nonprofits often struggle with their reach in the community and having a consistent strategy for outreach can impact many other areas of their organization…like fundraising, board recruitment, HR and brand recognition. This session will host a lively discussion of the above and help organizations come up with a strategy and a schedule for the year.

An equity statement for your organization isn’t the end product, Nonprofits still have work to do with our leadership pipelines, our volunteer and staff training and our service practices. This session is about real change in how we recruit, onboard and orient our board members using an equity lens.

Our greatest strength is our ability to help nonprofits build sustainable, mission-based programs...

But everyone has to start somewhere. Have you just launched your organization and need some assistance? Our professional staff have worked with individuals and organizations at every stage of their development and we know it helps to sometimes talk with someone who’s been there. 

We’re happy to offer resources and technical assistance as you make your vision a reality.

We've been there, we can help!
