This March, 270 nonprofit employees, board members and volunteers participated in Placer Community Foundation’s Nonprofit Leadership Summit. Becky Lunders of teamWorks facilitated the training with a focus on building a solid foundation of volunteer leadership, plus we had a wonderful presentation by Child Advocates of Placer County-CASA.
“Continued training is an essential element to the health of any organization,” said Placer Community Foundation CEO Veronica Blake, “The goal of this Summit is to teach practical skills to the leaders of our nonprofit sector so it will continue to thrive.”
“As a result of the training we received at the Leadership Summit, we plan to reevaluate where our volunteers are serving and if not in the right position, realign them to where they can feel fulfilled and can do their best work.”
With this opportunity to gather and acknowledge local nonprofit organizations for the vital services and programs they provide in our region, Placer Community Foundation is honored to be working alongside these many organizations who carry with them a vision for growth and a commitment to improving the lives of Placer County residents.
“I found it all helpful. It was a wonderful refresher to get me back on track and motivated in certain areas such as volunteer relationships. Thank you for the wonderful lunch, the material and the information presented. I have not been treated so well at summits that I have paid for, let alone this being provided at no cost. What a wonderful service and support you provide for the nonprofits. Thank you!”
Placer Community Foundation offers the all-day Leadership Summit free of charge to nonprofits operating within Placer County through gifts made to the Foundation’s Community Leadership Fund and through the generosity of our local sponsors.
Yelena Tsuman, Rocklin Store Manager for Wells Fargo said, “We are very proud to be a sponsor of the Nonprofit Leadership Summit. Wells Fargo gives our support to Placer Community Foundation’s training of the many hard-working nonprofit organizations that so admirably serve our region as part of their Nonprofit Initiative.”
