Training: Management Series

Effective supervision contributes directly to mission effectiveness for your nonprofit. It is critical to maintaining a productive staff in the face of shifting and competing priorities. Strong supervision creates a culture of mutual respect in which employees and supervisors communicate regularly and clearly about job-related expectations, tasks and overall performance.

Fundraising succeeds on knowing our donors well. This workshop emphasizes a donor-centered approach to developing a successful non-profit development program. Learn to engage your donors in meaningful ways with the life of your organization to match donor philanthropic goals with organizational outcomes.
