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 third session in the series is “The Keys to Volunteer Management.” Volunteers provide an invaluable service to nonprofit organizations. Attend this session to discover effective methods for determining the wants and needs of volunteers in today’s changing environment. Learn why people volunteer and how to best utilize that motivation to fit your needs. This session addresses recruitment trends, where to look for the volunteers of tomorrow, and how to keep the volunteers you have.

The session will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 11 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center. It will be led by nonprofit consultant, June Miller. The last session, “The Nonprofit Board of Directors That Works,” will be held on Sept. 15.

“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
