Capacity-building webinar series for nonprofit staff and board members

The Community Foundation

The Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado has opened registration for two comprehensive training webinars discussing COVID-impacted nonprofit financials. The Foundation’s “Something to Chew On” webinar series is free and convenient, designed for nonprofit leaders to grab a lunch, log in via Zoom, and learn valuable lessons in nonprofit management.

Webinars will be offered twice a month on Tuesdays, noon – 1:30 pm. September’s offerings will dive into nonprofit financials and will be most helpful for nonprofit executive directors, bookkeepers and board treasurers. Sept. 8 will cover cash flow projections and Sept. 22 will examine budgets and scenario planning. Materials from the Nonprofit Finance Fund will be shared, and local financial experts from the Community Foundation’s finance committee will be available to answer questions. Participants will have the chance to win a free two-hour consultation with one of our panelists.

“We know 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, and we want to offer our local nonprofits the opportunity to gain skills and strategies to enter 2021 resilient and strong, with the tools they need to succeed,” said Briggen Wrinkle, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “The trainings are structured so that all attendees, from novice to expert, will have something to chew on.”

The “Something to Chew On” webinars will continue twice monthly through the rest of the year and will examine topics such as alternative fundraising, human resources, remote working, and Southwest Colorado Gives. Costs associated with the webinar series will be covered through the Community Emergency Relief Fund, supporting professional development for local nonprofits during a year with numerous budget constraints.
