Should Nonprofits Be More Like
Join us for the final session of our 2018 Best Practices Series on Wednesday, April 25 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.Howard County Funders Forum
Most for-profit businesses are fair to mediocre. To simply copy any for-profit business is not going to ensure success. First and foremost, nonprofits need to know what success is and identify those organizations, both for-profit and nonprofit, that are the best in the breed. Using the framework from the business classic, Good to Great and the Social Sectors, participants will learn how to define and measure “Great”, get the right people on the bus, create a culture of discipline, and build a sustainable organization. Register here.
On Wednesday, May 16th come hear from representatives of the Howard County Department of Community Resources and Services, the Horizon Foundation, The Community Foundation of Howard County, and United Way as they share their latest funding priorities and grants criteria. Following a brief panel presentation, the funders' representatives will be available for round table discussions to answer individual questions and to provide guidance on grant eligibility and how to write a successful grant proposal for their respective organizations. Registration is required.
Howard County nonprofit organizations employed 11,640 people, representing 8% of the county's workforce and paid $203 million in wages, representing 9% of total county wages.
