Nonprofit Breakfast Trainings Promote Good Governance

Our Nonprofit Breakfast Training’s will resume in January 2018. The monthly training’s are a chance for nonprofits to hear about the programs being offered by the Whitefish Community Foundation and, they offer training on subjects important to the operating and governance of a nonprofit.

Most Nonprofit Breakfast Trainings will be held in the Heckathorn Community Room at the Whitefish Library from 8:30 to 10:00 AM. Enjoy coffee and pastry while conversing on important nonprofit issues. Discussions will be led by Linda Engh-Grady, President of the Whitefish Community Foundation and Daria Perez, Vice President of Finance and Operations. The trainings are free and typically limited to 30 attendees. Registration is required for each participant.
