Boards in Gear

Wednesday, January 29th from 4:00pm-8:00pm
Nancy Bacon

Through this hands-on workshop, we will cover how to connect board members to your cause while building and sustaining an engaged board. This session covers board responsibilities, operations, development, fundraising, and advocacy. It’s based on the Boards in Gear resources developed in partnership with some of our state’s leading board experts. You’ll leave with concrete action steps, tools, and connections. Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment, and other critical issues. We’ll have fun while we find new ways to rejuvenate your board.

Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits

Wednesday, March 4th from 4:00pm-7:30pm
Lee Harper and Lawson Knight

Using innovative methods, presenters will share the five main topics that board members need to know about nonprofit finance: Balance Sheets, Income Statements, IRS Form 990, Giving, and Oversight. It tells you what to look for in your organization to grow your mission and protect your assets. Healthy finance practice can be habit-forming when people are working within their comfort zones, so we will discuss how to get your organization there. And no finance training is complete without a hearty game of BINGO!

You care about your mission and want to make sure your organization does what it needs to do to succeed.

Developed by Washington Nonprofits and Wayfind, Let’s Go Legal breaks down nonprofit law into its must-know pieces (State Law, Federal Law, Fundraising, Employment, and Intellectual Property) to help busy board members achieve your mission.
