Strong nonprofit organizations must have an effective and engaged staff and board of directors. The Community Foundation offers affordable, professional development opportunities to enhance the management and leadership skills of local nonprofit board and staff members.
More than 1,500 nonprofit board and staff members have benefitted from BoardLaunch workshops, and the Community Foundation partners with other community organizations to provide professional development opportunities.
"The nonprofit world is a unique hybrid of the public and private sectors. BoardLaunch workshops help bridge the knowledge gap for our board members which in turn gives them the tools they need to be better stewards of our organization," says Mark Slocum, Executive Director of Children's Cancer Connection.
