ECF Offers Series of Workshops for Nonprofits

The Evanston Community Foundation will offer a series of three local and low-cost workshops “Tools that Work” for nonprofit leaders between Nov. 7, 2013 and April 30, 2014.

• Nov. 7, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. with “Tools for Managing Nonprofit Personnel and Finances.” Aina Gutierrez, Deputy Director of Interfaith Worker Justice, will facilitate the workshop. Participants will learn about personnel policies and procedures other groups are using and best practices to troubleshoot staff issues when they arise. This workshop also outlines the basics of nonprofit financial management and provides tools to streamline budgeting, financial reports and cash flow.

 • Jan. 29, 2014, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  Facilitators Melissa Berliner and Andrew Brommel of Campbell & Company will bring their combined expertise in major gift fundraising and philanthropic messaging. They will offer tools to help organizations define a case for support, develop strong donor messaging, and convey messages effectively in donor conversations.

 • April 30, 2014, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Based on the best-selling book by the Principal of Spectrum Nonprofit Services, Steven Zimmerman, “Nonprofit Sustainability: Making Strategic Decisions for Financial Viability,” this workshop will offer a new perspective on integrating mission impact and financial viability. Steve Strang, a consultant with Spectrum Nonprofit Services, will present participants with a tool for analyzing and strengthening their business models, and how to integrate this tool into the ongoing practice of their organization.
