Nonprofits do wonderful work, often on shoestring budgets with limited resources and little to no communication with others that labor as they do. The purpose of the annual nonprofit convening is to bring us together and give nonprofits the opportunity to learn about each other, collaborate, dialogue about successes and challenges, discuss strategies for change, and more.
At the convening, attendees will participate in workshops focusing on:
-Governmental requirements for starting a nonprofit
-Strategies for training the board and protecting the organization
-Short and long-term strategic planning
-Sharing “down-home” grassroots fundraising ideas while you strive to obtain grants and corporate support.
Who should attend? The convening is for staff, board members & volunteers of fledgling nonprofits or folks planning to start a nonprofit organization. Morning refreshments and lunch are included.
