Nonprofit Training Series

Many nonprofits in our region are doing incredible work, and we want to support that work in ways that are sustainable and impactful. Ongoing professional development can be expensive and hard to come by in the nonprofit sector. That was the inspiration for the Nonprofit Training Series. Through this partnership of United Way of Northeast Georgia, Athens Area Community Foundation, Athens-Clarke County Unified Government, UGA’s Office of Service Learning, and UGA’s Institute for Nonprofit Organizations have joined together to provide a series of trainings for nonprofit organizations in Northeast Georgia.

Specialists from areas in nonprofit development, fundraising, board management and more will leverage their insight and expertise to help organizations build capacity and show impact.

Training registration is posted on GivePulse, the trainings themselves take place via Zoom (currently), and recorded trainings are posted on the Athens Area Community Foundation’s YouTube Channel.
