The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on local nonprofit organizations. Beyond our grantmaking work, Community Foundation Sonoma County offers educational resources for these nonprofits, which have been adapted for the current shelter in place orders. As we navigate the uncertainty together, we have planned and sponsored a number of online events to help organizations adjust. We hope this series of upcoming webinars will assist in supporting local nonprofits through the changing landscape of leadership, connection, and community.
The interactive webinars will provide accurate information, practical answers, actionable strategies, and a forum for sharing, and are offered in collaboration with The Ginnie & Peter Haas Jr. Fund, Marin Community Foundation, The Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) and Partnership Resources Group (PRG).
