We understand the importance of ensuring that appropriate governance practices are established and board members are aware of their responsibilities.

Call us today to set up your training.
  • The Whitefish Community Foundation is a resource for nonprofits. We provide several programs to help nonprofits improve their bookkeeping, governance, and community outreach programs. Regular Nonprofit Breakfast Trainings allow nonprofit executives, staff, and board to come together to ask questions, brainstorm issues, and gain valuable insight on policies and procedures.

The Community Foundation is also a resource to help train your new board members in good board governance.
