The Center for Nonprofit Stewardship (CNS) has been awarded a $4,000 grant from Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation (CCUIF) to build stronger nonprofits in Klamath County with training workshops, advice, and other support.

CNS’s Nonprofit Learning Series in Klamath Falls will include three half-day workshops held every other month from July to November. Each half-day workshop will consist of three hours of curriculum on board governance, fundraising, or finance and budgeting. The workshops will include speakers from CNS’s expert staff as well as other practitioners and resource providers.

Attendees will have the option of purchasing a three-workshop pass for $99 or a one-workshop ticket for $45. CNS is able to offer these defrayed rates thanks to funders like the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation.

CNS attended an awards ceremony held in Canyonville, Oregon on January 14, 2020 to receive the grant. CCUIF awarded a total of $474,650 to seventy charities in Southwestern Oregon during this funding cycle.

Foundation Executive Director Carma Mornarich said “with its emphasis upon meeting the basic needs of people, strengthening family, and assuring educational opportunity the CCUIF, one grant at a time, improves life in southwestern Oregon and beyond.”

Mornarich said the mission of the foundation is to offer assistance in youth education, strengthen youth and family, provide for positive youth development, and add to the quality of live for people in the region.
