Los Alamos Community Foundation Announces 2021-22 Nonprofit Training Program


The Los Alamos Community Foundation is offering three in-depth training workshops designed to build organizational capacity to area nonprofit organizations. The workshops will be held virtually initially and will move to hybrid if possible and will be approximately three hours long (including discussion, breakout sessions and breaks). 2021-2022 workshops are:

Creating Financial Visuals for Your Nonprofit

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 9:00am – 12:00pm

Presenter: Frank R. Lopez (Virtual)

Every nonprofit leader uses financial information in making decisions. Both staff and board leaders review     financial statements on a regular basis. This interactive workshop will guide nonprofit leaders to develop graphs and charts to make your financials standout. Whether using these visual financials for internal purposes (such as board meetings) or external purposes (such as applying for a grant), being able to present your organization’s financial information more clearly and effectively will allow your audiences to gain a better understanding of your work. 

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Practices for Nonprofit Organizations: A Community Conversation

Thursday, January 20, 2022  9:00am – 12:00pm *This workshop is FREE (advance registration required)

Presenter: Ian Esquibel & local nonprofit leaders (Virtual–may be adjusted to hybrid if appropriate)

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are inherently interrelated, but are also distinct concepts.  DEI matters in the workplace, especially in New Mexico where we have many diverse populations, and our work often involves community engagement that will impact diverse communities. This is an interactive workshop designed to help you assess where your organization is within its diversity, equity and inclusion work, and to help you chart a path for where your organization would like to go. 

HR Policies, Hybrid Work, and Technology – Oh My!

Tuesday, March 15, 2022  9:00am – 12:00pm
Presenter: Kari Sutton (Virtual-may be adjusted to hybrid if appropriate) 

Technology is increasingly woven into our lives and the day-to-day of business. This session will explore the intersection of technology and HR. How can organizations effectively manage teleworking employees? How do you design policies to account for employees working on organizational devices or personal devices? How can you modernize your HR-related recordkeeping, and keep documents with sensitive personnel information digitally secure? This class is geared towards those who manage operations and use of technology within their organization, as well any leaders of organizations with remote or hybrid employee.

Nonprofits are encouraged to send 2-3 participants, including senior staff and/or board members. Cost is $50 per workshop (January 20th workshop is free). Workshops will be facilitated by Groundworks New Mexico. For full workshop descriptions, presenter bios, and/or to register, please visit www.losalamoscf.org
