2018 Nonprofit Learning Series registration open

Registration is now open for the 2018 Nonprofit Learning Series. This year’s series is filled with new speakers brining innovative takes on today’s most pressing nonprofit issues. Geared toward community leaders who staff or volunteer with nonprofit organizations, churches, and units of government, and wish to build their knowledge and skills in areas of leadership, finances, marketing and more, this series will offer extended networking and peer learning opportunities.

“Many people do not realize how much our communities depend upon volunteer leaders,” said Elaine Peck, Executive Director of the Putnam County Community Foundation. “Successful communities have strong nonprofit leaders who have the tools, information and support they need to accomplish their missions.”

The Putnam- Montgomery Learning Series is brought to you by the Putnam County Community Foundation and the Montgomery Community Foundation, with special thanks to sponsors Hendricks Power Cooperative and Hoosier Heartland State Bank, in conjunction with Indiana United Ways.

The February, March, April, and May workshops will be held in Crawfordsville at the Crawfordsville Country Club while the August, September, October, and November workshops will be held in Greencastle at the Inn at DePauw. Individual workshops cost $15 per session and include lunch. The cost to attend all eight workshops is only $100.

Putnam County nonprofits that register for the entire series, pay in full by Tuesday, Feb. 6, and have a representative attend all eight workshops will receive a $250 grant bonus!
