Washington Nonprofits November Learning Opportunities
November 7, 14, 21 - 12:00-1:00 p.m. Online
In this 3-part series running on Thursdays in November, we will cover nonprofit board engagement and performance topics, including many tips and tools that participants can implement immediately. This series includes the opportunity for "chat" conversations during the series and an open dialogue for participants wanting to go deeper into the topic. Series extends the ideas originally shared by Cathy Trower through WN's governance workshops in communities across the state.
November 8, 9:30-11:00 a.m.
The right culture, values, tools and resources are essential to being a successful grants steward and managing your grants programs well on behalf of your funders and the community you serve. This session introduces GrantsUSA's Grants Readiness Assessment checklist - a detailed tool to help you identify what grants-readiness resources and practices are already working well in your organization, and where changes need to be made to make sure your organization is truly "grants ready."
- Online Tools that Help Nonprofits Learn, Listen, and Engage. In partnership with Firespring.
December 3, 12:00-1:30 p.m.

December 6, 11:00-12:30 p.m.
Program development requires careful planning, research, and the mobilization of both social and financial capital. During this workshop, we will review strategies for effective program development, including creating logic models, researching evidence-based and promising practicies, partner mobilization, and sustainability planning.
