Your organization exists to make a difference. A group of people got together—maybe including you—and founded a nonprofit corporation to tackle an important issue. That corporation is like a car. It has a shape and size, it needs to be registered, and the people in the car matter. You need fuel to propel it forward.
Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit is a workshop that covers the basics of running a nonprofit. You can attend a training in-person or online, or watch the 3-part recorded webinar series below. We draw on tested tips and tools, including Nonprofit Association of Washington’s four learning toolkits on boards, finance, law, and planning. You will gain concrete next steps on how to strengthen your organization to better achieve your mission.
