What We Do
Professional Development Seminars/Workshops
“I wish I had more time to take advantage of all the things you offer... it seems like every workshop interests me!”
Nonprofit Network provides several trainings and workshops each month. All are affordable, some at no charge! Our curriculum is broad and diverse, covers areas such as fundraising and development, human resources, technology, leadership training, basic board training and governance.
We will bring our trainings to you - and if you need something special, we will find it, design it or customize it to fit your needs.
(Members receive discounted pricing on all trainings.)
Board Development Program
“There's a lot more to serving on a non-profit board than I realized and with no staff, we are on our own to figure it out. You've really helped me understand the system and provided resources when we've needed help.”
One of the greatest challenges a board faces is recruiting, orienting and training new board members.
We do Board Assessments - they grade themselves, anonymously, on how they relate to the ED, each other, if they think they are all on the same page, if they believe they are doing well. We compile the results, identify where we think you should start and give you solid tasks to help you move forward.
We facilitate board retreats and strategic plans.
(Members receive discounted pricing on all Board Assessments and Retreat Facilitation.)
“You offer the services that area non-profits need to stay in tune with changes and to learn how to survive.”
We can review your bylaws, help develop a strategic plan, create a public relations or fundraising plan, review grant applications and teach you how to identify funding sources, or evaluate your programs.
If you are looking for a sample policy - any policy - we have it or can find it through our resources.
(Many of our consulting services are offered to Members only)
Coordination, Information, Referral
“I know that I can call or email when I need help. That is a great feeling.”
We have extensive resources to serve you. We have sample policies, procedures and templates. Nonprofit Network acts as a point of coordination, information and referral for the nonprofit community.
We have a lending library with over 400 titles ranging from how to structure a board, how to run a committee meeting, how to write a grant, how to write an appeal letter, what your financial statements should look like, financial best practices, how to hire, how to fire.
We have a team of Community Partners - event planners, fundraisers, graphics designers, meeting facilitators - that have all agreed to provide services to our members at discounted prices. Contracts are written between you and Nonprofit Network, Nonprofit Network hires the consultant on your behalf and Nonprofit Network guarantees the work. (Most of these services are for Members Only.)
We are continuously adding affordable services that help you build your capacity, operate more efficiently, and be a stronger organization.
