Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) is excited to continue the Nonprofit Growth Series, a string of workshops aimed at helping nonprofit organizations serving Harrison County grow and thrive. The 2024 series will kick off with a Charity Gaming workshop on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, from 10:30 am to Noon in the HCCF Conference Room. This free workshop, presented by Mark Mason, Director of the Charity Gaming Division of the Indiana Gaming Commission, will cover compliance for special events and fundraisers, including raffles, drawings, auctions, licenses, and reporting. Registration is open [this workshop is now full, but a waiting list has been started], and lunch will be provided, but space is limited, so be sure to register early and secure your spot.

In addition to the February workshop, others are planned throughout the year. On April 3, 2024 from 12 to 1 pm, Theodore "Tad" Myer of Wyatt Tarrant Combs will guide attendees through the Legal Responsibilities of a Nonprofit Board, ensuring compliance and effective governance. Then, on May 7 from 10 am to 12 pm, a workshop on Collaborations led by Ed Cortas of CNPE, will help nonprofits navigate the complexities of Forming Successful Partnerships to Maximize Impact. Ed will return on June 5, 2024, from 12 to 1 pm, to explore volunteer recruitment strategies beyond board recruitment, offering practical tips to attract and retain volunteers. Registration for these subsequent events will open a month in advance of the program date.

HCCF is partnering with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNPE) out of Louisville, Kentucky, to bring these offerings to the community. The professionals of CNPE, alongside the staff at the Foundation, provide many years of combined nonprofit experience. With this experience comes an understanding of nonprofits' unique challenges and opportunities as they make a difference in our community.

Attendance is free for nonprofit leaders serving Harrison County. To register, please visit Nonprofits of all sizes and stages are encouraged to attend.
