College to offer a professional development series designed for nonprofits

GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College’s Corporate and Community Learning division is offering a professional development series for nonprofit personnel this fall.

“The Nonprofit Development Series truly is for everyone,” CCL Instructor Lisa Masters said. “Whether you are new in the field of fund-raising or are a seasoned professional looking for new ideas, you will come away with a packed toolbox, which will include the tools necessary for planning and implementing a successful fundraising year and a solid foundation to build on in the future.”

Nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers would benefit from the five-part series, which will be offered in two-hour segments. Participants will meet once a month from 7 to 9 p.m. at L&C’s campus in Godfrey. Specific meeting dates are Aug. 25, Sep. 22, Oct. 13, Nov. 17 and Dec. 8

LCCC’s Assistant Director of Corporate and Community Learning Katie Haas said: “Non-profit organizations accomplish so many great things in our community. I’m confident this series of workshops will be a resource to help them achieve their missions for years to come.”

Designed to get a newbie off on the right foot and as a back-to-basics refresher for anyone involved in the leadership of a non-profit organization, these monthly sessions will focus on five key areas of nonprofit leadership: the development plan, board development, annual funds, corporate solicitation and events.

Participants can register for all five workshops for $199, if they enroll before Aug. 22. After that, the workshops are $50 each. For more information, visit or call Haas at (618) 468-5750.
