About programs:
  • 23@4 Programs  are designed to get information and resources to busy nonprofit professionals.  These hour-long sessions fall on the 23rd of each month and start at 4:00PM.  Our “shareable” resources and handouts will be posted here, on our website, when available. The 23@4 does not meet every month, nor on weekends.
  • Grant Basics I and II occur monthly, except in August. In Grant Basics I, learn grant seeking strategy using the 900-PF and the Foundation Directory Online. You will learn vocabulary, basic components of proposals, the proposal writing process, writing tips, and resources for further study in the Grant Basics II program. You cannot register for Grant Basic II until you have attended Grant Basics I.
  • Get on Board – a board development project with grant support from Foellinger Foundation to train, connect, and support emerging leaders and the nonprofits they wish to serve. Learn more at our Get on Board page.
  • A Day of Restoration on Friday, March 21, for nonprofit professionals, whose jobs of caring for others puts them at risk of stress overload. Experience practices for well-being like aromatherapy, labyrinth meditation, yoga, and more.
  • Meet the Funders, Wednesday, June 18, 2014, gives you the chance to hear area funders speak about their giving priorities and ask questions face to face. Attend panel and/or speed-dating portion.
