We help make Whidbey nonprofits even better
Whidbey nonprofits help sustain our beautiful, vibrant Island. But it can be difficult for them to find the time and money to travel to Seattle or beyond for the training and assistance they need to stay up to date on new tactics and trends. In consultation with the organizations we support, the Foundation delivers specialized training that meets the unique needs of small to mid-size rural or small-town nonprofits. We envision helping charitable organizations in everything from executing best practices in financial management to developing a major gift strategy, honing their messages to producing fundraising events, evaluating and improving programs to recruiting board members and volunteers.
Stay tuned as we update this page and add events!
Finance Unlocked For Nonprofits for Whidbey Nonprofits
We each have our own experiences with finance that may stir up excitement, mixed feelings, or uneasiness. These feelings can shape how we approach our relationship to nonprofit finance. Approaching nonprofit finance in a welcoming way, the Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits virtual workshop aims to help unlock your financial literacy. WCF is pleased to bring back nonprofit fundamental trainings to Whidbey Island this year. The next workshop series we will be hosting in partnership with Nonprofit Association of Washington is Finance Unlocked For Nonprofits – a two-part hybrid series.
The first session will be online in Feb, and the final in-person session will be held in Coupeville in March. WCF is offering this for free to Nonprofits serving Whidbey Island.
