Press Release
Thursday, August 21, 2014

How can you build a better culture in your organization? What are the best ways to identify and engage major donors? And what’s wrong with the term ‘annual fund’?

These issues and others will be addressed this fall during a series of workshops tailored specifically to nonprofit leaders in Essex County. Hosted by the ECCF’s Center for Nonprofit Excellence, the four interactive workshops draw on the expertise of both ECCF staff and local professionals to address topics affecting the impact and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations.

“Because the work of nonprofits is so important to all of us, we know professional workshops such as these help everyone,” said Carol Lavoie Schuster, assistant manager of grants and schedules. “These are designed so nonprofit leaders can apply the knowledge right away.”
