Nonprofit Training: “Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit”

Whidbey Community Foundation is co-sponsoring a training session with Washington Nonprofits in Mount Vernon on April 21, 2018. Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit is a daylong workshop for leaders of small organizations, completely or mostly run by volunteers, covering the basics on how to deliver on their missions. The training will be delivered by Washington Nonprofits, and will draw on tested tips and tools on boards, finance, law, and planning.

Topics include:

  • The right size for your organization to be sustainable
  • Legal and finance information to compliance and protection
  • Budgeting
  • Program design
  • Volunteer management
  • Fundraising
  • Grant readiness

This workshop is designed for board, volunteers and staff of smaller organizations. Anyone who wants to know nonprofit basics and have concrete actions to move their organizations forward will find something in the day. While a team is not necessary, it is helpful to have at least two people from an organization.

The workshop will be held on April 21, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, at Skagit Transit Station, 105 East Kincaid in Mount Vernon. A light meal will be served. Registration is $20. For information or to register, contact Washington Nonprofits
