The Irvine Foundation understands how challenging the economic fallout from COVID-19 continues to be for nonprofits. We are grateful to offer, when we can, opportunities to bolster the short- and long-term sustainability of our grantees.
That’s why we’re hopeful grantees can take advantage of a free, optional, virtual training series on tools and practices to build your organization’s financial resilience. Leading the trainings will be our partner, Fiscal Management Associates (FMA) and Klein & Roth Consulting.
Below is more information from the trainers on the series, as well as how to register. If you are a regranting partner for Irvine, please feel free to invite grantees under that program.
You can register for just one, two, or all three workshops – or none, if not of interest. And if you have questions about this financial resilience series, please contact Roxanne Hanson: email@example.com.
