These events are all part of our larger initiative that focuses on educating and equipping our community with practical tools to engage those in poverty. These events are geared not only toward nonprofits, but also businesses, educators, and any other sectors that work with those in poverty. We hope that you will join us for any number of these events and invite your staff as well!


Our United Way hosts the GrantStation database for nonprofits to search for grants. This free training will provide an overview of how to use this database to search for potential grant funders. We are offering this same training on a few different dates throughout the spring; click below on any of the dates to be directed to the registration page. As well, please bring a laptop or tablet with you on the day of the training.
Leading Well
In Good to Great, author Jim Collins talks about what sets good leaders apart from great leaders. "Level 5 Leaders," as Collins puts it, have a certain outlook and drive for excellence. In addition, great leaders practice what author Kim Scott calls Radical Candor. Join us as Mike Hayes, Vice President for Student Development at Lee University, unpacks these concepts and relates these practically to our work as leaders in the nonprofit community. This training is recommended for anyone, from lower level staff to CEO.
