The Board Chair and Executive Director must be able to clarify their roles, nurture a trusting and supportive relationship, and create space for honest conversations. This workshop will explore the keys to a successful relationship that fosters a healthy board and organizational culture. If you attended last year's workshop you are welcome to this one - there's always more to learn!

Fee: $25 per person. For more information, click here.

Facilitator: Sharmila Rao Thakkar, Support Center Affiliate Consultant

Deadline to register: March 2

The partnership between the Executive Director and the Board Chair is an interdependent one that requires consistent communication and collaboration.

Beyond the Foundation's regular, discretionary grantmaking, we are pleased to be offering this additional funding opportunity for nonprofits.

Westchester Workforce Fund seeks to increase the number of high-quality training opportunities preparing residents for good paying jobs with a future.

The Fund aims to foster innovative, collaborative solutions to address skill shortages employers face.  Up to $350,000 is expected to be available for grants in 2020,  although it is anticipated that the maximum award will not exceed $100,000.

The Westchester Workforce Funders Collaborative is a group of local and regional funders with a shared interest in workforce issues. 

Deadline for proposals:
March 4, 5 pm
