Dodge’s Board Leadership Training Series, designed for executive leaders and board members of Dodge grantee organizations, is a comprehensive step-by-step program to build a stronger and more effective Board of Directors for your organization. We have teamed up with The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University's Business School to present a comprehensive training series. It includes overviews of nonprofit life cycles and assessment, strategic planning, financial management, recruiting and retaining effective board members and more. Offered October 2015 - May 2016.
Workshop Attendance and Registration Requirements
This series requires a substantial commitment from both staff and board. To be eligible for a matching grant for follow up work with a consultant, your organization must attend THREE foundational workshops, and a minimum of THREE of the five drilling-down workshops.
You must attend as a team of top management staff and up to three board members.
All workshops are limited to 25 participants and will fill up quickly. Preference will be given to Dodge grantees committing to the entire series (and, space permitting, previous Board Series graduates).
Prudential Loan Fund Workshop
The Prudential Loan Fund offers short-term loans to eligible New Jersey nonprofit arts and culture organizations. This workshop is facilitated by Hilda Polanco, FMA founder and CEO, and covers all aspects of the Loan Fund from its application process to how to use the fund as a resource for your organization.
The workshop — offered on Sept. 24 and Sept. 30 only — is mandatory for organizations that intend to apply to the Fund this fiscal year.
