In an effort to assist nonprofits with capacity building, the Scott County Community Foundation will be hosting quarterly lunch and learn sessions. Board members, volunteers and staff of nonprofit organizations are highly encouraged to attend.

The last session in the series is “The Nonprofit Board of Directors That Works.” This workshop reviews the essential responsibilities of every nonprofit board of directors, regardless of mission, size, or location. Participants will leave with a better understanding of what the duties of a board are, and with the tools needed to perform those duties. Participants will also understand the foundation for a great working relationship between the lead staff person and the board.

The session will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 15 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Mid-America Science Park. It will be led by nonprofit consultant, June Miller.

“We are pleased to continue our nonprofit workshops for the fourth year,” said Community Foundation Executive Director Jaime Toppe. “We’ve really seen a growth in local nonprofits as they implement ideas they’ve learned, and they enjoy the networking provided through the sessions.”

“I advise staff and volunteer board members to support your organization by attending,” said Toppe. “Our grants committee will look favorably upon organizations that apply for funding from the Community Foundation, and have shown a desire to build their organization’s capacity through attendance at these sessions.”

The cost for attending is $10 per person and includes lunch. Registration is due one day prior to the session, and can be made by calling the Scott County Community Foundation at 812-752-2057 or emailing info@scottcountyfoundation.org.
