Strengthening Nonprofits: Capacity Building Summer Workshop Series

Capacity building is defined as the ability of nonprofit organizations to fulfill their missions in an effective manner. However, in today’s rapidly changing environment, there is considerable concern that many community-based nonprofit organizations lack the capacity and technical expertise to keep up with the constant change.

Brewer & Associates presents Strengthening Nonprofits: Capacity Building Summer Workshop Series. This interactive, hands-on series is designed to engage participants where they are. The series is divided into five sessions, which include:

  • 501(c)3 or NOT;
  • Proposal Writing Bootcamp;
  • Fundraising on a $hoestring Budget;
  • Board Development to Governance; and
  • The Fundamentals of Strategic Planning.

Executive Leaders and Board Members interested in expanding the capacity of their nonprofit organization will benefit from this workshop series. The content is designed to help new or current executive directors or anyone leading a team or committee within a nonprofit. Participants will receive a participant guide, take-away template(s) to be implemented in their organization and web-based resources. The organizations that benefit from these workshops include nonprofit and government agencies that provide vital services as diverse as afterschool programs to senior art classes, from health services to job readiness and from technology to recycling.

The workshop series will kick-off on May 18, 2017 at the Ivy Tech-Gary Campus, located at 1440 East 35th Street, Gary, Indiana. The work-shop costs range between $65 to $139. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Registration began April 3. For further information, feel free to contact Falicia Brewer at [email protected] or at (317) 445-8932.
