About our education programs

Some 240 members of the Boulder County community attended SVP’s Boards With Brains educational programming in 2015. Staff and volunteers from 74 organizations came to these professional development trainings to enhance and align their awareness of nonprofit governance best practices.

For the second full year of this capacity building programming, twelve sessions covered a breadth of governance themes, including introductory overviews, fundraising and financial management trainings. Specific deep-dive topics included outreach strategies, productive conflict, diversity and inclusion, engagement strategies, strategic planning preparation and more.Idea People
