In an effort to assist nonprofits with capacity building, the Scott County Community Foundation is hosting a new virtual series, Inspired Moments. Many organizations cite training as a need but rarely have a plan to address it due to cost and scheduling. The Inspired Moments program will offer quick training offerings for nonprofit board and staff to attend at your convenience. Learn more, at your own pace, with online training sessions provided by Tobi Herron with Inspire Motives LLC. The training will be short, direct, and includes tools you can immediately put to use in your organization.

The second session in the series will be on board of director roles and responsibilities. Have you been invited to be on a Board of Directors for a nonprofit organization but aren?t entirely sure what that entails? Do you want to understand more before you answer? In less than 30 minutes, you will be prepared with the basics and include practical information to help you be successful should you choose to say yes to your newfound opportunity. If you?re already a board member but sometimes aren?t sure about when you should engage, this training is also for you. You?ll learn what you?re legally responsible for as well as the three main roles for a board. You?ll better understand officers, committees, and how they interact with executive directors. You?ll also leave with tools you can customize for your own organization.

Future sessions will include topics on fundraising, the board-staff partnership, and board composition and recruitment. The previous session on strategic planning is also still available to be viewed once an account is created. In addition, Inspire Motives will offer 10 sessions to the community where you can meet one-on-one in a 30-minute Zoom to ask questions specific to your organization. These sessions are first-come, first-served and will be offered through July. To register, contact Tobi at

?Our Board of Directors is pleased to continue our nonprofit workshops for the sixth year,? said Scott County Community Foundation Executive Director Jaime Toppe. ?Because we realize everyone has busy schedules, we are offering the series virtually this year. This is a great opportunity for staff and board members to learn at your leisure, or even incorporate into your board meetings!?
