The Learning Community Application Deadline This Friday

Only 24 hours remain for local nonprofits to apply for the Community Foundation of the Ozarks’ The Learning Community program. This educational opportunity is a unique cohort for 10 nonprofit agencies and is free to Agency Partners based on a competitive application basis (the application period has closed).

The Learning Community is an intensive, 10-month training effort that begins in October. These agencies get to participate in four day-long educational sessions, with one-on-one training and customized materials for each organization. Educational topics include financial resiliency, resource development, board involvement, and marketing, mission, and vision statement work.

The Learning Community is in its second year and received rave reviews from participants in last year’s program. Many participants found the combination of day-long training combined with one-on-one, on-site training to be a valuable combination that inspired true, positive change in their programs.

Learning Community applications were due Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 at 5 p.m.
