We are celebrating 25 years in Atlanta with a day-long capacity building training! The day will include social sector capacity building training, nonprofit impact workshops, and funder networking activities.

We created this training based on participant feedback to help you scale your expertise and gain insights to increase your impact. The day will include three tracks: governance, strategic and fundraising planning, and nonprofit leadership. We have an amazing group of speakers and presenters lined up. Click here to see the full program.

Participants will also have the incredible opportunity to have lunch with funders in an intimate, informal setting. This is a great opportunity to network and learn more about what funders are looking for.

We have extended the early-bird rate of $95 through 9/15!
