2020-2021 Nonprofit Training Program

2020-2021 Nonprofit Training Program

During our 2020-2021 session, LACF and United Way of Northern New Mexico are partnering to offer local nonprofits three in-depth training workshops designed to build organizational capacity in the wake of the pandemic.  Each workshop will be held virtually and will be approximately three hours long (including discussion, breakout sessions and breaks).  

Nonprofits are encouraged to send 2-3 participants to each workshop, including senior staff and/or board members.  Tickets are $50 per organization per workshop.  A discounted package deal is available which includes access to all three sessions for $100.  

Nonprofits will leave each workshop with an immediately usable, measurable action plan.  Included in the ticket price is access to a follow up session which will be held 4-6 weeks after the workshop, designed to keep each organization on track to accomplish its plan. 

Workshops will be facilitated by the Center for Nonprofit Excellence.

The success of any organization begins with a strong board. And successfully navigating your organization’s mission in a post-pandemic era begins with a strong plan. This workshop will offer key lessons of what constitutes a high-functioning, impactful board, including use of an assessment tool to provide a baseline understanding of where your organization is today. It then dives into strategic planning to help guide your organization to where it wants to go. Additionally, key fundamentals will be addressed such as review of mission and vision, the relationship between board and executive director, and the duty of care.
