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 continue to update this page as our nonprofit services grow!

Upcoming Nonprofit Workshops

Nonprofit Fundamental Trainings: Boards in Gear

You joined a nonprofit board because you care about the organization’s mission. You want your contributions as a board member to positively affect the issues addressed by the organization. As a board, you want your nonprofit to thrive and make a difference in the communities served by your organization. Whether your nonprofit is just starting or is long established, getting your board in gear can help put your organization on a clear path forward.

This interactive, virtual workshop led by Pamela Oaks is based on the Boards in Gear resources developed in partnership with some of our state’s leading board experts. WCF is offering a discounted price of $5 total per person. Nonprofits serving Whidbey Island are eligible to attend. We ask that organizations try to limit themselves to two participants per organization due to limited space.
