A series of two-hour workshops designed for nonprofit organizations is being hosted by Dabney S. Lancaster Community College's Workforce Solutions and Community Education division, with DSLCC President Dr. John Rainone as the instructor.
Dr. Rainone has an extensive background in the operation and funding of educational and cultural organizations, as well as with guiding development plans for a variety of community service groups and non-profit organizations. He has taught courses for DSLCC on fundraising for the Arts Management Career Studies Certificate.
Three workshops have been scheduled to date. All will be held in Room 502 in McCarthy Hall on the DSLCC Clifton Forge campus, on the following Tuesdays from 3 to 5 pm:
“The Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards," April 30. This workshop offers essential training for new and experienced board members, providing them with practical information, resources, and tools that they can use right away to further their organizations' missions.
“The Nonprofit Board's Role in Fundraising," May 28. This workshop provides a clearer understanding of roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards as it relates to fundraising. This workshop will also discuss ways to build an effective fundraising board and identify possible activities every board member can participate in to raise funds.
“Making the Ask," June 25. This workshop will focus on the science and art of that magic moment – and the steps leading up to it. Based on practice and theory, this will help nonprofit professionals and board members in making the fundraising process effective and efficient.
Each workshop will carry 0.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Those completing at least 7 of the workshops in the series – a total of 10 workshops are planned -- will earn a certificate of completion, in addition to a total of 1.4 CEUs.
