Center for Nonprofit Stewardship (CNS) is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Mid-Valley Development Professionals (MVDP). MVDP serves professionals in Oregon’s Mid-Willamette Valley who raise funds for nonprofit organizations. CNS will maintain MVDP’s commitment to providing development professionals in the Salem-Keizer, Albany and Corvallis areas with affordable opportunities for professional growth and development.

Since holding its first general membership meeting in February 1998, MVDP has grown to more than 100 members. Their meeting topics are those of interest to nonprofit development officers, including planned giving, foundation grants, board development and motivation, special events, strategic planning, public relations and capital campaigns.

In 2019, CNS will manage the administration of MVDP programs and membership on a trial basis. We will also be offering great benefits to MVDP members, including a discounted rate for our annual conference ($99, a huge savings from the regular rate of $165) and free attendance to two of our Learn@Lunch series in 2019.

In January 2019, we will announce the year’s program and open up membership for renewing and new members. Make sure you sign up for our newsletter to be notified by CNS-MVDP about annual membership, group passes and educational opportunities. For more information, you can visit MVDP’s website, which is in the process of being updated by CNS.
