The Foundation provides regular, free opportunities for local nonprofits to strengthen organizational capacity through topic-focused workshops.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person workshops have been cancelled through at least the end of July. We are, however, continuing to offer capacity-building sessions for nonprofits.
