Services & Rates / Workshops and Training Services

In addition to my other consulting services, one of the great pleasures I have in my job is teaching others the skills to make their organizations as effective and sustainable as possible.

I have taught many workshops over the years, and created curriculum that is geared toward helping nonprofit professionals acquire new skills that they can put into practice immediately.

Among the workshops I can present for your organization (board, staff, or volunteers) are:

  • Introduction to Fund Development Planning

  • Grant Proposal Writing Skills - Basic or Intermediate

  • Basic Training for Your Nonprofit Board of Directors

I can also work with you to design a custom course to fit your organization's current needs.
