These events are free and are held quarterly on various dates at the Fox Valley Technical College, Bordini Center. Relevant topics include finance, fundraising, human resources, board development, personal leadership and more.

Leadership Institute

The Leadership Institute offers educational modules on critical leadership, management, technical and governance topics and the opportunity to earn a Nonprofit Management Certificate. The Institute was planned and implemented by a committee of nonprofit executive directors, Fox Valley Technical College, consultants and others active in the nonprofit sector.

Board Effectiveness

The Board Effectiveness activities includes resources, tools and training for those involved in board service.

If you are a board member with a nonprofit whose EIN with the IRS is within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region service area and would like to receive invitations to our board training events, please register with the online resource NonprofitNext Fox Valley. It’s free to register and the users of this site receive invitations to our board training events.
