For readers who serve a new nonprofit or are  thinking about creating one, the Central Mountain Small Business Development Center (SDBC), in conjunction with Northwest SBDC and West Central SBDC, has some training to help you. It is hosting a four-session workshop series on nonprofits beginning Wednesday, Feb. 3. The presentations are slated for 12:00 noon each day.

The series is presented by high-demand speaker Robin Thompson, a Certified Nonprofit Fundraising Professional. She has worked as Vice President of Development at the Vail Valley Foundation and Oregon Institute of Technology, plus as Executive Director of the Oregon Tech Foundation and Vail Christian High School.

Over the last several years she has worked with many nonprofits in the mountains of Colorado, across the U.S. and internationally helping them be more successful in raising money. She is the author of two books: “Putting the FUN in Fundraising: The Secrets to Raising More Money, Faster and Easier” and “Know Stress to No Stress—A Guide to Achieving Life Balance”.

The sessions are slated for Feb. 3, March 3, April 7 and May 5. Cost is $15 per session or $45 for all four. To register click here.

The first session: To Be or Not to Be a Non Profit: Seven questions to consider before starting a 501(c)(3) Are you considering starting a nonprofit, but don’t know where to begin?

In this virtual presentation you’ll learn what you need to know to take the next step towards either forming a nonprofit or not.
