spread the good classes

The Foundation hosts a class for nonprofits once a month, January through June. The classes are free and the topics vary each session, as nonprofits suggest to the Foundation the current issues they want covered, guiding the content. 

For your 2020 schedule there will be 3 classes offered that focus on fundraising, as this was a highly-requested topic. Then for 2 of the sessions we are bringing back Mark Holdt from Mountain Sage Consulting. Mark has been a favorite presenter for our classes and we look forward to having him again.
