GODFREY — Lewis and Clark Community College’s Corporate and Community Learning division is offering a professional development series for nonprofit professionals this fall.
“The Nonprofit Development Series truly is for everyone,” CCL Instructor Lisa Masters said. “Whether you are new in the field of fundraising or are a seasoned professional looking for new ideas, you will come away with a packed toolbox, which will include the tools necessary for planning and implementing a successful fundraising year and a solid foundation to build on in the future.”
Non-profit staff, board members and volunteers would benefit from the five-part series, which will be offered in two-hour segments. Participants will meet once a month from 7-9 p.m. at L&C’s campus in Godfrey. Meeting dates are Aug. 25, Sept. 22, Oct. 13, Nov. 17 and Dec. 8.
“I am very proud of recent addition to our community education offerings,” L&C Assistant Director of Corporate and Community Learning Katie Haas said. “Nonprofit organizations accomplish so many great things in our community. I’m confident this series of workshops will be a resource to help them achieve their missions for years to come.”
Designed to get a newbie off on the right foot and as a back-to-basics refresher for anyone involved in the leadership of a nonprofit organization, these monthly sessions will focus on five key areas of nonprofit leadership: the development plan, board development, annual funds, corporate solicitation and events.
Participants can register for all five workshops for $199, if they enroll before Aug. 22. After that, the workshops are $50 each. For information, visit lc.edu/CCL or call Haas at (618) 468-5750.
