The Nonprofit Leaders Series provides free professional development opportunities to nonprofit leaders serving Columbia and Montour Counties. The series is designed by the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation in collaboration with the Berwick United Way and United Way of Columbia and Montour County to provide educational outreach.
A variety of topics are offered throughout each year. Interested nonprofit leaders are welcome to attend any and all sessions that are of interest. Nonprofit leaders are encouraged to share feedback and additional areas of interest with the Foundation for future planning.
Please note: due to current funding restrictions, this series is restricted to nonprofit leaders in Columbia and Montour counties. The Foundation is working to identify ways to expand this geographic area in the future.
