As our community becomes more complex, nonprofits are facing an unprecedented number of challenges on their path to success and understanding community needs.

That is why the Community Foundation of Sarasota County provides workshops and trainings as opportunities for local nonprofits to gather and learn from one another as well as industry experts about ways to maximize their efforts and strengthen their work.

Attending any workshops or trainings is contingent upon your nonprofit organization having a profile in The Giving Partner with an Approved/CURRENT status. All sessions are offered at no cost to nonprofit organizations with this designation.
