Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit Workshop

Sep 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Washington Nonprofits is hosting a nonprofit workshop in Seattle, presented by Nancy Bacon, Associate Director of Washington Nonprofits, and Lee Harper, Executive Director of Phinney Neighborhood Association. It is an opportunity to learn about the best practices for strengthening your organization in order to better achieve your mission, as well as to network with local nonprofits and others interested in or connected to the nonprofit sector.


Join your local nonprofit network on, Saturday, September 21st at the Phinney Neighborhood Association. Event starts at 9:00am and ends at 3:00pm. Registration is $30, with light breakfast and lunch provided. Cost should not be a barrier to participate. Please contact us if you have any requests, concerns, or questions.


Your organization exists to make a difference. During Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit, we will cover the basics of running a nonprofit. We will draw on tested tips and tools, including Washington Nonprofits’ four learning toolkits on boards, finance, law, and planning. You will leave with concrete next steps on how to strengthen your organization to better achieve your mission. Join us on this road trip to a strong nonprofit!


Topics will include: sustainable sizing; legal and finance information; budgeting; program design; volunteer management; fundraising; and grant readiness. This workshop is designed for board, volunteers and staff of smaller organizations. Anyone who wants to know nonprofit basics and have concrete actions to move their organizations forward will find something in the day. While a team is not necessary, it is helpful to have at least two people from an organization.
