Nonprofit Leadership Academy (Cohort B)

The goal of the Nonprofit Leadership Academy (Cohort B) is to provide the skills and knowledge necessary to be an effective nonprofit or civic board member. Current board members and nonprofit employees who are interested in leadership training are encouraged to apply. You must be able to attend each session from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm on the third Wednesday of the month, April through November 2022. All sessions will be held at the foundation’s conference center, 801 S. Fillmore, 7th Floor. Note: The November will be held on the second Wednesday of the month (11/9/22) to avoid a conflict with National Philanthropy Day.

Gain the knowledge you need to be an effective board member. This series of eight, monthly classes will cover the topics of, Introduction to Nonprofits, Board Governance, Fundraising, Financial Responsibility, Legal Issues, Must-Have Documents, and Nonprofit vs. Civic Leadership.
