Small, grassroots nonprofits tell us that they wish we had something on Saturday for board members who work. We know that staff members new to nonprofits need a chance to get the overview on how nonprofits work, from boards to budgets. We want to make sure that nonprofit leaders in parts of the state without a lot of learning opportunities get what they need to succeed.
“Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit” will be offered in Long Beach, Mount Vernon, Prosser, Moses Lake, and Tacoma this spring. We think about the content of the workshop as being what is involved in planning a road trip: where are you going (purpose, right sizing), what are the rules of the road (legal and finance rules), what road should you take (program planning), who is driving with you (board and volunteers), and how will you fuel your organization (fundraising). Participants will leave ready to take action on a few elements of their organization, and a stronger sense of community with others learning alongside them.
This day is perfect for members of a working board and staff of small nonprofits. Mid-size nonprofit staff new to nonprofits would benefit as well.
This workshop is being offered by WashingtonNonprofits working in partnership with the Nonprofit Network of Southwest Washington and the Office of the Secretary of State. It costs only $20 to attend, with all resources and a light lunch included.
