LACF And UWNNM Announce Fall Trainings For Nonprofits


The Los Alamos Community Foundation and United Way of Northern New Mexico are pleased to announce the following training sessions for nonprofits serving Los Alamos and Rio Arriba Counties. Two training opportunities are scheduled for the fall, with a third session, focused on nonprofit boards, to be held in early 2024 (date TBA). Thanks to the generous support of Triad/LANL-Community Partnerships Office, the trainings are provided at no cost to participants. 

Sessions are offered in person with a remote/video option. To encourage in-person participation and networking, travel will be reimbursed for those traveling more than ten miles. In addition, up to three organizations will be selected at each session to receive two hours of individual consulting with the presenters.

Sessions are appropriate for nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers.
