Nonprofit training program coming to Columbia Valley starting in 2018

Nonprofit pathways training program for local not-for-profit organizations

Submitted by Columbia Valley Community Foundation

Does your local not-for-profit organization have a clearly defined strategic plan? Do you and your board of directors have the resources and skills required to achieve the goals of the plan? Do you know where your funding is coming from to fulfill the plan?

If you answered no to any of these questions, your organization may qualify to participate in “Non-Profit Pathways” – a training program built specifically to support the organizational needs of non-profit groups in the Columbia Valley.

An initiative of the Columbia Valley Community Foundation, in partnership with the Vancouver Foundation, Non-Profit Pathways will hit the trail in 2018 with a series of practical workshops and ongoing support to help non-profit groups build their capacity. Organizations will journey together to identify needs, locate resources, develop tools and identify next steps to ensure they have a clear pathway to success.

“The goal of the Columbia Valley Community Foundation is to support community initiatives that contribute to quality of life in the Columbia Valley. We recognize that healthy, well-supported, non-profit organizations are critical to the success of our mission” said Barb Kloos, Chair of the Columbia Valley Community Foundation. “To help achieve this, we have partnered with the Vancouver Foundation to pilot a support program to assist eligible non-profit groups in our valley. Enter, Non-Profit Pathways!”

The Non-Profit Pathways program will start a pilot project in January 2018 with five (5) non-profit organizations. The participating groups will be selected through an application process. The applications to participate in this pilot program are available now through November 15th on the Columbia Valley Community Foundation website, As a result of the funding received through the Vancouver Foundation, we are able to provide this pilot program at no charge for local non-profits.
