Collaborative Schedules

Workshop for Nonprofits

The Martha’s Vineyard Donors Collaborative has scheduled its spring workshop for Vineyard nonprofits, Strong Boards For Effective Governance and Good Fundraising, on Wednesday, April 16 at Outerland, 17 Airport Road, Edgartown.

The workshop is designed for organizations that have a challenge recruiting and retaining good board members or need to restructure their board to improve their governance and fundraising in an increasingly competitive environment.

Workshop topics will include legal obligations of nonprofit board members, ways to teach their board members to speak about your mission, and why every board member can be a great fundraiser even if they never ask for money.

Chuck V. Loring, the senior partner of the fundraising and governance consulting firm of Loring, Sternberg, & Associates, will lead the workshop.

Thanks to support from the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, members of Vineyard non-profits can attend this the workshop for $25 per person, including breakfast and lunch. More information is available by calling 508-645-3690.
