Tools For Running an Effective Non-Profit Workshop

November 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Your organization exists to make a difference. A group of people got together—maybe including you—and founded a nonprofit corporation to tackle an important issue. That corporation is like a car. It has a shape and size, it needs to be registered, and the people in the car matter. You need fuel to propel it forward.

During Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit, we will cover the basics of running a nonprofit. We will draw on tested tips and tools, including Washington Nonprofits’ four learning toolkits on boards, finance, law, and planning. You will leave with concrete next steps on how to strengthen your organization to better achieve your mission. Join us on this road trip to a strong nonprofit!

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

You will leave ready to:

  • Define to others what success looks like for your organization
  • Name one way your organization can be more sustainable
  • Name two elements to track for legal and financial compliance and protection
  • Explain how your programs tie back to your mission
  • Describe how your organization understands overhead
  • List at least two things that need to be in a volunteer or board job description
  • Name one way your organization can raise money without spending any money

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 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.

Cost:  $30  (Scholarships are available.  Cost should not be a barrier to participate.)

Light meal served.  Plenty of breaks for networking and connection.  Opportunities to ask about specific resources your organization needs.
