The Greater Worcester Community Foundation is holding workshops for area non-profits.

Since many of you are involved in community non-profits, I’m sharing in the news.

One coming up soon is free. Others have low fees.

A Stronger Workforce: Leveraging State Resources to Invest in your Staff
Wednesday, March 25 – 8:30 a.m.-11 a.m; Free workshop

Learn about the ways that your organization can support and develop its employees through the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund: a statewide program that provides employers in the Commonwealth with funding to train and develop their employees. At the meeting, you will also participate in a facilitated conversation to identify and address professional development needs across the nonprofit sector to ensure we have a strong pipeline of nonprofit leaders.

How to Ask for Money
Tuesday, March 31 – – 9 a.m.-12 p.m. (continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m.); Fee: $35

Attendees will discover a valuable and compelling framework for fundraising success and practice making “the ask.” This session gives a fresh, invigorating perspective and the additional tools in the quest to strengthen an organization’s fundraising potential.

What to Know to Be the Board Member you Hope to Be
Thursday, April 2, 4:30-6:30 pm; Fee: $35

This high energy, interactive workshop will give attendees personal vision for their board service, a baseline for their performance, and an action plan to move from good enough to great. Topics include: what every board member should ask before joining a board, basic responsibilities once you’ve joined, relations with the Executive Director and staff and how to find other resources to support your own growth.

Worcester County Data Common: Get Acquainted
Mid-May – Watch for details, date & fee TBD

Discover the new central Massachusetts data center which will help nonprofits strengthen their programs, provide context for their grant proposals and offers insight into how the region is changing. In this day-long session, attendees will discover a powerful interactive data portal and online mapping tool to provide and retrieve data about the Central Massachusetts region. It will be utilized and updated by nonprofits, health organizations, public safety agencies, government, business and industry, and many others to provide data that is current, accessible, relevant, and available in formats that best meet the needs of the user.
