A Story of Local Giving
"I am so thankful for these sessions through the Nonprofit Leadership Series. I love that they are free--that means a lot in the nonprofit world! All of the sessions I've attended have helped me learn new strategies to keep me on top of my game, and everyone who has presented on the topics are always friendly and helpful."
(Samantha Scoblink, Beyond Violence, Inc. Marketing Development Coordinator)
Program Service Area
Due to current funding restrictions, the Nonprofit Leadership Series is restricted to nonprofit leaders working in Columbia and/or Montour Counties. The Foundation is working to identify ways to expand this geographic area in the future.
The Nonprofit Leadership Series was designed to provide educational outreach through a collaboration between the Community Giving Foundation, Berwick Area United Way, and United Way of Columbia and Montour Counties.
RSVP Policy: Nonprofit Leadership Series sessions are free to attend. If you need to cancel your reservation, please email notice to [email protected] at least 24 hours prior to the session date.

Facilitated by Multiple Presenters
Join us for a relaxing workshop to reboot and reenergize by developing your own personal stress management toolkit. This workshop was popular last year, and we are interested in helping you find different ways to reenergize and manage your stress. The goal is to walk out of the workshop with your plan to conquer the rest of the year with ease! The most effective leaders lead by taking care of themselves and modeling the behavior so your staff can do the same.
